Knoxville, Tennessee: The team at Next Day Access Knoxville installed a 146 linear feet ADA-compliant wheelchair ramp for an elementary school in Loudon County, Tennessee. The permanent ramp allows students in a mobility device, such as a wheelchair, to access the playground.
Installing a Commercial Ramp at an Elementary School
With the playground being on top of a hill, the only way students could access it was the stairs. The Next Day Access Knoxville team took three days to install the commercial ramp. The rainy weather conditions and the ramp being on a slope caused a hindrance to the installation process.
“This was a huge job for us,” said Josiah Tillett, Branch Manager of Next Day Access Knoxville. “It’s so satisfying to see the ramp come together according to plan. While the weather made it more difficult to install, we were able to get it done, and ultimately help create an accessible and inclusive space for all students.”
This was Next Day Access Knoxville’s third ramp install for Loudon County. The team has previously installed wheelchair ramps for Loudon High School’s football stadium.
