Accessibility Consultation

Are you concerned that your property may not be in compliance with the current accessibility requirements?  Invest three to four hours with a professional architect that is familiar with Americans with Disabilities Act, HUD, Fair Housing and state/local accessibility requirements.  We use current standards to evaluate your existing property, project or design documents and provide recommendations to bring your property in compliance with applicable code.  For older properties fixes can include "readily achievable" barrier removal, while newer properties are required to fully comply.  Equip yourself with the knowledge to reduce your liability.


We can provide framework for new property acquisition as well as existing properties.  An accessibility report can also be provided with our real estate feasibility consultations.  For a typical accessibility consultation, we spend two to three hours at your property and perform a comprehensive evaluation of your existing condition.  A brief letter report is prepared back at our office and we are available for an additional phone meeting to discuss the presented information.  Evaluation may include fixed services such as toilet rooms, drinking fountains, flooring surface and thresholds, entrance and egress, and fixed transaction counters.

Report includes a summary of the existing conditions. We identify what is in compliance and what needs to be addressed along with design recommendations. A table evaluating plumbing fixture compliance, accessibility drawings, and photographs of existing conditions is included.  Samples are available.

More extensive investigation and reports are quoted on an individual basis.
