Accessibility is impacted by overlapping laws, codes, standards and initiatives which can make it more challenging than other aspects of the developing environment. Our team of experts can help navigate these requirements, such as the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Fair Housing Act (FHA), International Building Codes (IBC), state and local amendments as well as other specialty regulatory guidelines to find the best solutions for your projects. We also provide guidance to remove additional access barriers through advocating for inclusive design opportunities that meet more individuals’ needs and improve overall experiences of the community and end users.

Accessibility Consulting for New Construction

Our accessibility experts guide your team from start to finish for any new construction project. We can help determine applicable scope and areas of concern in the design, provide thoughtful guidance for accessible design details, and coordinate implementation during construction. Because we know the design and construction process start to finish, we are able to anticipate potential problems before they happen and offer solutions. There are always various options to meet design goals and we can help uncover them.

  • Plan, Design, & Drawing Review
  • Construction Site Visits/ Observations

Consulting for Existing Sites + Facilities

Existing and historical sites fall under a different standard of care and regulatory oversight than new construction. Our team provides detailed assessments of existing buildings and sites to evaluate deficiencies and opportunities for designers and owners, including considerations for cost and community impacts. Whether updating a building, performing a self-evaluation, or implementing a transition plan, our expertise will help you reach your project goals.
