RIBA CPD: Inclusive Environments

Sesame Access Systems Ltd: Inclusive Environments CPD

We have recently launched our RIBA-approved Inclusive Environments CPD and host regular CPD seminars, either online or in person, for both groups and company-wide.

View our CPD on the RIBA website: https://www.ribacpd.com/sesame-access-systems-ltd/29786/overview/

Overview of the CPD

Sesame Access Systems Ltd works closely with architects to develop bespoke, invisible, high-quality wheelchair access lift solutions that complement the architecture of any building.

Our clients include the Sydney Opera House, the Bank of England, Kensington Palace, and Apple Stores throughout Europe and worldwide. In 2016, Sesame won The Queen's Award for Enterprise in Innovation. In 2022, Alison Lyons, Director of Commercial Development, was awarded an OBE for Sesame's international trade achievements.

Historic England and Historic Environment Scotland have approved Sesame lifts in many Listed Buildings across the UK, including Grade I Listed ones.

Sesame provides a free weekly RIBA CPD webinar on CPD 07 Inclusive Environments, which is one of the 10 Mandatory Annual RIBA CPDs. Sesame lifts fully comply with the relevant sections of BS6440:2011 and the Machinery Directive (2006/42/EC), including relevant harmonised standards such as EN81-41.

Sesame Access designs and installs wheelchair lifts that comply with local standards worldwide, including those in the USA. Sesame Access’ Declaration of Conformity gives assurance that we comply with European Standards, including the European CE mark.

I consider Sesame Access as a perfect example of a company that strives for innovation and social impact. Their British-made lifts are seamlessly merging with the aesthetic characters of any listed buildings. Their weekly CPD webinar on RIBA CPD07 Inclusive Environments (one hour long) is excellent – very informative and I learnt a lot about access for all.
