A group of students and faculty from the FAMU-FSU College of Engineering, including affiliates of the ASAP Center, constructed a wheelchair ramp for a local senior citizen with mobility issues. The ‘Ramp It Up’ project was coordinated through the Ability1st Center for Independent Living, and construction was directed by Eric Evans, Crew Supervisor for Ability1st. Ability1st is a community-based non-profit organization that provides services to persons with varying disabilities in Leon and surrounding counties in an effort to increase independence, integration, and removal of architectural and attitudinal barriers for all. The FAMU-FSU project provided a 16’ single wheelchair ramp and a half-height step system for Jackie Bolden, a 65 year-old with significant mobility needs due to a stroke. The ramp enables Mr. Bolden to safely enter and exit his home for access to various transportation options, including a city bus route immediately adjacent to his property. Because of challenging site conditions, including a dramatic slope angling away from the house, a custom build was required.
