I took the bus from Vauxhall to the centre - and got of at Maryway Lane (or something like that). I then walked very slowly to the centre. There is a ramp to the front door and you press the button with a bell on it.
The waiting room has 4 rows of chairs with a gap between them in the middle. They also have a recycling bin and a water cooler not far from the entrance to the waiting room door. The chairs have arms, and no real support for the back.
I was on the ground floor, in the room furthest away from the door that separates the reception area and the assessment rooms. The corridor is quite narrow. so it would be difficult for someone in a wheelchair in that is wide to go through it.
The reception desk has 2 levels, and anyone with you will have to sign in. There is a security guard who keeps walking up and down, looking in the waiting room to check on people.
To get out of the building, you just press the press here button - that will automatically open the door.

This centre is quite hard to get to by public transport. It's a substantial walk from the station (Waterloo) although there are busses which go much nearer. I took a uber from waterloo because the buses make the journey quite so, so plan a long time to get there. The taxi could stop right outside the building and the path is about 20 metres I think.
The waiting room was on the ground floor and the walk to the office where the ATOS person saw me was also on the ground floor, but quite a walk, which was obviously being done with her behind. You should check with reception how far you have to walk. there were stairs so some assessments might be up them.
