Canadian Deafblind Association – Flagship Training & Resource Centre – Paris, ON
Paris’ former Sacred Heart Elementary School has been recently re-purposed into a flagship Training and Resource Centre for the Ontario Chapter of the Canadian Deafblind Association.
The former elementary school underwent a complete interior re-design and renovation to accommodate the specific requirements of the Canadian Deafblind Association.
The newly renovated space followed the new FADS (Facility Accessibility Design Standards) and included 3D information communication including colour contrasting floor to walls, different textured floor finishes and different textured handrails throughout to provide wayfinding information for consumers.
This facility hosts a state of the art music room and sensory room, offices, training/conference rooms and boardroom as well as fully accessible kitchens and bathrooms.
The Canadian Deafblind Association is an amazing community resource and Vicano Construction Limited was proud to be a part of making this centre their ‘dream come true’.
