At Kiwi Property, we want to enable greater accessibility for all. We have partnered with Be. Lab whose vision is for New Zealand to become the most accessible nation in the world. Their guidance, advice and assessments have enabled us to achieve a GOLD accessibility rating at LynnMall.
By making our places open to all, we create a more welcoming, inclusive atmosphere for visitors and ensure those working in our buildings are well supported to be independent. As far as possible, we aim to remove barriers that make access difficult, ensuring our shopping centres and offices (where applicable)can be enjoyed by everyone.
To ensure all customers can navigate around the single retail level centre with ease, the main entrances are controlled by automatic doors, aisles are wide with good LED lighting and lifts provide good access to the centre from the multi-level carparking that make accessibility to shops and facilities easy.
Dedicated mobility carparking is available near the entrances to LynnMall of all carparks. These carpark spaces are available to vehicles clearly displaying a valid mobility permit.
