Accessibility Solutions


Accessibility covers a broad range of needs, including the elderly, persons in wheelchairs, the blind, and persons with other disabilities.

Unfortunately, non-accessible properties can expose property owners and managers to litgation.  Have you ever heard of someone falling because of a lack of railings on a property or broken concrete sidewalks?      

Property owners and managers often find themselves in need of cost-effective non-accessibility mitigation to address these hazardous and illegal situations.

Together with civil engineer Ken Erlanger of KJE Consulting Engineers, we are using our expertise to provide solutions.   Homeowner's Associations (HOA), Residential Property Management groups, and Commercial Property Development groups, among others, can all benefit from a consultation.  Call us for assistance with your or your clients' needs.
