ADA Compliance Expert in Architectural Design
An ADA compliance expert was needed to review handicapped accessibility issues involving commercial real estate. The building predates the Americans with Disabilities Act and was therefore not built to meet the standards of Title III: Public Accommodations, which defines handicapped accessibility for commercial facilities. One of the definitions of discrimination under Title III of the ADA is a failure to remove architectural barriers in existing public accommodations.
