TERPconsulting offers accessibility consulting services to evaluate access to facilities for persons with disabilities for all types of commercial, industrial, and municipal construction projects. As specialists in fire/life safety and code consulting, TERP can assist you with navigating accessibility compliance requirements which is an integral piece of any new construction or renovation project and mandated to be compliant with the American Disabilities Act (ADA) and all other applicable accessibility guidelines.
Accessibility design and construction require a thorough understanding and knowledge of all federal and local codes and standards that apply to disabled access requirements. Our team members are certified through the International Code Council (ICC) as accessibility inspectors and plans examiners as well as Certified Access Specialist (CASp) certified, which is a California state-specific certification for accessibility consulting through the California Division of the State Architect (DSA). Our ICC- and CASp-certified accessibility consultants can perform a site visit and provide a detailed report of where deficiencies and upgrades are necessary.
Utilizing one firm for both fire life safety and accessibility code consulting brings added value to your project. Attention to detail must be at the forefront during every step of the project. TERP will be there to assist with all phases of the project from interior and exterior design review to construction administration services and inspections. It is optimal to identify any potential issues that impact accessibility compliance during the design phase of a project. Correcting problems after the start of construction can adversely affect both the budget and your project’s completion timeline.
If your firm has compliance needs, or simply doesn’t have the time or manpower, one of our certified code experts can manage the numerous federal- and state-mandated accessibility regulations on your next project efficiently and effectively.
