ADA Compliance Consultants
Accessible Design Consulting, LLC
Accessible Design Consulting is a Pittsburgh, PA based consulting firm working with small, medium, large, for-profit and non-profit businesses, as well as local governments, in fulfilling the legal obligations of Title II and Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act.
Our ADA auditors are capable of conducting an extensive evaluation of your physical location identifying barriers outlined in the ADA Accessibility Guidelines (ADAAG) and work with you in determining low cost, and in some cases no cost, alternatives to compliance.
ADA compliance is NOT an option its the law! The ADA is a civil rights law and not a building code; older facilities are NOT grandfathered in. Regardless of the size of your business, if customers, vendors or visitors come to your facility, you must be compliant. Under the ADA public accommodations are private entities that own, lease, lease to or operate a place of public accommodation. This means that both the landlord who leases space in a building to a tenant and the tenant who operates a place of public accommodation have responsibilities to remove barriers.
Accessible Design Consulting also provides consulting services to businesses who provide ADA services, such as:
New building contractors
- Paving and cement contractors
- Line painting contractors
- Human Resources Managers
- Investment Property Managers
Group presentations available to businesses and service contractors by appointment
