Sensory Centre Forth Valley

Jewitt Arschavir & Wilkie have been retained by the Forth Valley Sensory Centre Trust to design a Sensory Centre that offers a vital resource for the Visual and Hearing impaired population in the Forth Valley area.

Uniquely, the trust combines the resource agencies; Falkirk City Council, Stirling Council, Clackmannan Council, Forth valley NHS Trust, RNIB, RNID and the Guide Dogs for the Blind & all working together to provide a crucial and innovative service centre for those with sensory impairments, in Camelon, Falkirk.

Funding for the centre consists mainly of grant funding from many agencies, supplemented by an intensive fund-raising programme. One of the conditions of a large portion of the grants was that the actual end service users be involved in formulating the brief. As a result the building incorporates some of the most advanced technologies and philosophies available in the field of sensory impairment.

Clinical Audiology and Ophthalmic assessments will also be carried out at the centre, therefore a high degree of specialist sound insulation and visual enhancements have been incorporated into the design.

The design and siting of the building has also been chosen to encourage a high level of integration with the local community. Local associated clubs and groups will be encouraged to use the large Activities Hall, the Café and the Recording Booths extensively, during the day and in the evening.

To assist with circulation and orientation through the centre a number of tactile and visual references have been incorporated into the detailing and finishes specifications & all designed to offer total barrier free access for all visitors.
