Accessibility is an equally important
component of both new and existing environments. Equipped with
an intrinsic, insider's perspective on disability and more than
20 years of experience helping architects and designers achieve
ADA compliance, we at Compliance Alliance have the experience
you need on your side. Don't spend hours searching for code references
trying to make sense of the conflicting requirements and overlapping
codes. Let us help you to develop solutions that work.
Compliance Alliance provides a wide range of accessibility services,
including but not limited to the following;
Barrier Removal Action Plan: Often
referred to as an "Access Study" our Barrier Removal
Action Plans are great for those who seek to improve the level
of accessibility their facility presently offers. A Barrier Removal
Action Plan consists of an in-depth evaluation of the facility.
Documented in a detailed report, including pictures and correlating
building codes, we identify barriers and offer practical tips
and solutions for their removal as well as suggestions for economical
ways to incorporate features that add not only safety and accessibility,
but functionality as well. Utilizing the acquired information
we assist you in developing a strategic plan to remove barriers
in a logical and systemic manner. Additionally,
we can provide you with cost estimates for any changes and information
on available furnishings, accessories, hardware and fixtures.
Plan Review: Whether
you are remodeling or planning a new facility, a plan review can
potentially save thousands of dollars and countless hours lost
in unnecessary delays. A thorough, in-depth review of construction
plans serve to detect any potential barriers which might otherwise
be built into your construction project. Moreover, omitting these
barriers at the design stage will prove far less costly than to
retrofit or otherwise correct the issues during the construction
phase. Depending upon the type of barrier(s) found during the
review process - your saving could be substantial. To ensure that
the process is smooth and efficient we can meet with you and your
design team to review and assist in resolving any issues noted
in the review process.
Professional Services: Compliance
Alliance provides accessibility and ADA compliance services, to
architects, contractors and other building design and construction
professionals. Our in-depth, inherent knowledge as to the intent
of the law enables us to help you develop alternative, equivalent,
facilitation solutions when literal compliance is not reasonable
or otherwise practical in nature.
Expert Witness/Testimony Assistance:

plaintiff expert witness and consulting services to both private

testimony our opinions are consistent and presented in a succinct

to support their clients.

information and assistance is sometimes required on a more immediate
basis, Compliance Alliance provides material as well as telephone
and on-site consultation.
spend money to remove barriers. And, businesses need to protect
that investment. A key component of ADA compliance is maintaining
those features so they remain usable. If key elements – often including
the parking, building entrance, route into and through the establishment,
access to the store’s goods and services, restrooms, cashier stations,
and egress – are not maintained, then access is reduced or eliminated.
A poorly placed trashcan or a locked door can make a building unusable.
