Blusson Spinal Cord Centre

ICORD Research Group

Vancouver, British Columbia

Completed in 2008, the Blusson Spinal Cord Centre is one of the most accessible buildings in the world. The 10,600 m2 (115, 000 ft2) barrier-free facility features conveniently located elevator toe kick buttons, long-range proximity access cards, increased receptacle and switch heights for ease of use, and adjustable lab casework. The building’s most visually stunning accessibility feature is a 600-foot-long ramp that stretches the perimeter of the atrium and provides access to the first three levels.

The building is a seven-story, multi-use rehabilitation and research facility with wet labs, research areas, and offices.
