MCYS together with ROMM refurbished the Registry of Civil & Muslim Marriages building to make it friendly to all user groups. The design addressed the site challenges and made the building seamlessly accessible. The building is connected to a Spice garden at the exit of the solemnisation room, and this presents a pleasant view when couples exit the room after the marriage ceremony.

Key Features:

  • The building design has incorporated facilities that cater for wheel chair users, elderly, pregnant women, children, visual and hearing impaired persons.
  • Lift call button and tactile warning indicators are added in the building to assist visually impaired persons. A PA system with induction loop and enhanced sound system are incorporated in the building for hearing impaired persons.
  • Information counter with e-kiosks and Q-matic system provides for a friendly customer service. Easy wayfinding is facilitated with clear and easy to understand signages.
  • Safe and friendly facilities such as wide levelled path ways with slip resistant tiles, stairs with double handrails, nursing rooms, diaper changing stations and child urinals are also incorporated in the building for all groups of people visiting the ROMM.
