ADA Remediation for Commercial Buildings
Compliance is more than checking a box. Today’s consumers look favorably on brands that offer well-thought accommodations for people with disabilities, our veterans and our growing population of elderly family members. In fact, as of 2017, ADA complaints were 17% on the rise.
4 Common Myths
1. FALSE: ADA accessibility is a one-time building code requirement.
2. FALSE: Tenants are not liable for compliance, only landlords.
3. FALSE: Historic buildings are exempt.
4. FALSE: Settling one ADA lawsuit guards you against future suits.
Complying with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is an ongoing concern. Growing chains operating in various states seek a process and proven approach to compliance. Newer brands cannot afford the risks of complaints or lawsuits. Meanwhile, both older and new commercial facilities still may be out of compliance despite representations to the contrary.
The Beam Team applies decades of expertise to help you update your business or institution to address ADA and state-by-state building codes.
