We’ve been providing facility accessibility assessments for quite some time. DLZ assisted both Title II (local governments) and Title III (public accommodations and commercial facilities) clients with review of many types of facilities for compliance with ADA standards. These facility accessibility assessments are often limited in some manner to be something less than a full self-evaluation required of Title II entities or full evaluation of some Title III facilities.
Several of these evaluations are prompted by proposed alterations to a facility, with the compliance evaluation assisting in planning the design of alterations to ensure accessibility. Others are prompted by concerns related to complaints or proposed real estate transactions as part of due diligence investigations. Regardless of the reason, DLZ can help with facility accessibility assessments. We perform evaluations for our clients and prepare the necessary documentation to allow them to make good decisions for proposed alterations, complaint resolution, or real estate purchase decisions. The level of detail is tailored to the specific needs of each project and all projects include a Facility Evaluation Report that documents DLZ’s findings and recommendations.
