No vacant disabled spaces outside main entrance, so directed to multi storey car park only to be told lifts were not working, which is not great when you are pushing a wheelchair!. Luckily attendant found space on ground floor, don't know how I would have managed otherwise. Once inside Brunel Building I found it mostly very good, clean, airy and informative. I did find the doors difficult to manage with a wheelchair as they did not open/close automatically and were quite heavy. Also the queue at lunchtime at the League of Friends Cafe was very long and not a great deal of choice, by the time I was served, had to rush to get to my appointment. So in my opinion there are a few things still to be ironed out.
