ADA Consulting Services

Indianapolis, Indiana

DLZ provides both full service and on-call/training ADA consulting services for state and local government entities.

DLZ full-service consulting includes assisting with completing an ADA review for compliance with Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of the town/city/county facilities including the work required to achieve a Self-Evaluation Transition Plan (SETP).  Specific services include an evaluation of site and architectural barriers for the all municipality owned/operated facilities including the public right-of-way.  Evaluations are completed using ADA Standards for Accessible Design (September 2010) and pertinent draft guidelines.  DLZ compiles the results of the field evaluations, including information for facilities within the public right-of-way (sidewalks and curb ramps), probable cost estimates, policies and procedures analysis, public meetings, designated ADA Coordinator, formal grievance procedure, etc. into the SETP.  Public meetings are conducted to receive public input on barriers perceived and to provide comment on the draft SETP, prior to finalization of the SETP for adoption.
