Accessibility Consulting

Applying Knowledge of Federal and Local Codes/Standards to Provide Disability Access

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, TERPconsulting can assist 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 is certified through the International Code Council (ICC) as accessibility inspectors and plans examiners, licensed as Certified Access Specialists (CASp), which is a California state-specific certification for accessibility consulting through the California Division of the State Architect (DSA), and certified as Registered Accessibility Specialists (RAS) through the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation (TDLR). Our ICC-, CASp-, RAS-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. TERPconsulting will be there to assist with all project phases 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, our certified accessibility code experts can manage the numerous federal- and state-mandated regulations on your project efficiently and effectively.
