HHL Architects performed an Accessibility Study at Prudence Risley Hall for Cornell University. HHL examined all the pathways on the exterior of the building as well all stairways, entry ways, exits, elevators, and transition spaces within the hall to ensure ADA compliance.

HHL worked with Robert Silman & Associates, Van Deusen & Associates, United Spinal, and Lend Lease to give Cornell University the most advanced and thorough information needed for the update to Risley Hall. United Spinal is the accessibility specialist that assisted HHL in ensuring that each of the proposed designs was ADA compliant. HHL then prepared a detailed and thorough report examining and explaining the four different options HHL had designed to make Risley Hall more accessible.
