HRC performs the ADA surveys and accessibility reviews to help make sure new and existing government, public, and commercial facilities are in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act and other state and local regulations. Identifying potential accessibility issues upfront helps assure accessibility to everyone—and saves time and money long-term.
An ADA survey keeps you compliant
An accessibility survey is required for new construction, as well as for existing facilities, to assure plans meet the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), a civil rights law passed in 1990 establishing protections for people with disabilities.
An ADA survey performed by the surveying professionals of HRC demonstrates that new public and commercial facilities are in accordance with federal law, as well as with other federal, state, and local regulations that apply. Demonstrating that all routes of travel related to the facility are accessible by all is the primary goal.
An ADA survey also details removal of barriers related to routes of travel in existing facilities—even those built before the ADA went into effect—to assure compliance.
Enabling accessibility is good for everyone
Individuals with a wide range of needs benefit from requirements in place by the ADA. Those with mobility issues, with issues related to low vision and hearing impairments, and other physical, mental, or emotional limitations, benefit from accessibility measures put into place on their behalf.
Making parking spaces, public spaces, building ingress and egress, and signage easy for all to navigate keeps you compliant, while also making your development welcoming to all.
It’s more than a good idea, it’s the law
