The Blind Foundation is New Zealand’s main provider of practical and emotional support for the 12,100 Kiwis who are blind or have low vision throughout New Zealand, enabling them to face their future with confidence.
Being the leading Braille sign manufacturer in New Zealand we had the privilege of equipping the Blind Foundation’s new Wellington premises with beautiful world class Braille signage.
This was one of our most important projects as we had too meet all standards and comply with what the Blind Foundation specified and most of all gathered feedback from the heart of the blind community in New Zealand, finding out what helped them the most in day to day access needs.
Lisette Wesseling, the Braille awareness consultant at the Blind Foundation (who has now passed away) was such a pleasure to deal with in the design and manufacturing process. She led the charge promoting braille into mainstream society, advocating for it to be used in official signage. She loved the way our Braille machine could print such friction-less dots saying, “I could fall asleep reading this braille.”
We wish to carry on our support for the Blind Foundation by communicating and networking together to make a more accessible country for the blind, show your support below.
Christchurch Bus Exchange
“Following the 2011 earthquake the Christchurch Central Recovery Plan was developed to provide a framework for the rebuild of the Christchurch CBD. Concurrently the ‘An Accessible City’ strategy was produced by Christchurch City Council to create a travel network which makes it easy, safe and enjoyable to get to central city destinations.” The Christchurch bus interchange is the first Government-led rebuild anchor project to be completed, costing around 53 million.
Canterbury earthquake recovery minister Gerry Brownlee said the facility’s opening was “a great moment for Christchurch”
Aura was a proud participant in this project working on contract to supply braille signage for all the bus stations and amenities. We are stoked as a team to be able to help the blind community around Christchurch access public transport more easily.
