Simone West

Inclusive Design Advisor, Transport for London
Simone has specialized in the field of inclusive design for over 20 years and has had the benefit of working on some incredible projects, developing her knowledge on what contributes to the creation of inclusive environments. Projects such as the London 2012 Games have helped to identify points of weakness through the project lifecycle helping to inform training, policy and procedural practices to reduce risk.

Prior to completing an MSc in inclusive design, Simone worked as a Chartered Building Surveyor experiencing design, construction and project management gaining a good understanding of the various demands across stakeholders engaged in planning, designing, implementing and occupying built environment projects.
Simone represents TfL on the B559 British Standards Committee which is responsible for overseeing and drafting design guidance around inclusion, including BS8300 and worked with the British Standards institute (BSI) to develop PAS 6463, Design for The Mind. She is a member of the Mayor’s Advisory Infrastructure Panel (AIP). Simone has been on the Advisory Board for the National Register of Access Consultants (NRAC) and was Chair of the RICS Inclusive Design Working Group which introduced inclusion as a mandatory part of the Assessment of Professional Competence (APC) ensuring better embedding into the profession.
