    The City of Winnipeg’s Access Advisory Committee presented Booth University College with an Access Award—Circle of Excellence following various renovations to the campus, which were designed by Ager Little Architects Inc.

    Booth University College’s front entrance was replaced with two gently sloping accessible walkways: the stairs, landscaping and bike storage were replaced; and public washrooms were renovated to improve accessibility. The entrance now features LED strip lighting at walkways, improving night safety; detectable warning areas and contrasting pavers, directing the visually impaired to the entrance; new sliding entrance doors allowing hands-free operation; and an integrated in-slab snow melting system.
