Title III of the ADA addresses public accommodations and commercial buildings. To truly know how you are doing, our professional consultant will perform an accessibility audit on the facility. The audit will include the exterior and interior of the facility. The exterior audit of the property includes the path of travel from the street, parking and public transportation. The interior audit will include all areas accessed by visitors, customers and vendors.
The data collected from the audit will then be used to create an access plan to remove barriers within your time frame. Enforcement of the ADA Standards does not insist on complete and immediate compliance. On the other hand doing nothing or taking half-hearted, slipshod measures are an invitation to lawsuits and substantial penalties, damages, and costs. Barrier removal is a continuing obligation, and it's expected that a business will take steps to improve accessibility over time.
ADA compliance is the law, but it's also good business. Americans with disabilities represent a profitable consumer market. According to the U.S. Census Bureau there are 54 million people with disabilities in the United States. This represents 19 percent of the U.S. population, which is approximately one in five Americans. They engage in $175 billion in discretionary spending each year according to the U.S. Department of Labor.
Meeting the needs of the disabled can positively affect a company's revenue. Knowledge is the key to starting your path to ADA compliance and becoming an unappealing target for ADA lawsuits. Ignorance is not a defense. The experts at ADC can give you specific details related to your business and perform accessibility audits of your facilities. ADC uses the data collected to create a plan to execute over time and in line with your annual capital planning process. These steps could open your facilities up to an untapped market of disabled individuals and give you a defense should any ADA complaints arise.
Accessible Design Consulting, LLC (ADC) compiles the results of the audit into an ADA Title III Remediation Plan that cites areas of concern at your facility that do not comply with the Title III Code. Each violation is identified and corresponding Section and Line Item included to match the violation, ADC will give recommendations on bringing your business in compliance, as well as work with you in determining a timeframe of completion of work and projected budget. The professionally prepared report is a fluid document your business can use for years to come. ADC also offers pre-construction and post-construction consulting for future endeavors. If you have any questions regarding ADA Title III, we are only a phone call, email or text message away.
