Burdus Access Management


In 2003, Burdus Access Management was called in by The Royal Parks to audit and make accessible design recommendations for the Diana Princess of Wales Memorial Fountain at RIBA Stage K.

The access brief included:

  • A review of design proposals
  • Recce to site whilst under early construction
  • Access report to assist the project in achieving a maximum level of access provision and comply with the Disability Discrimination Act 1995.

Working closely with Bucknall Austin's project manager, Gustafson Porter's Landscape Architect, Westminster City Council Access Officer and the Hyde Park Appeal, David Burdus made recommendations on the following which were embedded into the designs.

  • Wayfinding
  • Access paths
  • Seating
  • Paddling
  • Lighting
  • End user consultation
  • Miscellaneous


In 2005, David Burdus was asked by The Royal Parks to produce an access statement relating directly to the preparation of a planning application for submission to Westminster City Council, for the approval of:

  • The proposed “Hard standing to the Diana Princess of Wales Memorial Site”
  • Footpaths
  • Safety features to the “crossing stones”
  • Access master planning





David Burdus was named in the 'List of Thanks' in the programme for the day for the Opening Ceremony for The Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Fountain, Hyde Park, London.

The Fountain was opened on the 6th July 2004 by Queen Elizabeth II.
