Last month Heather obtained an Accessibility Inspector/Plans Examiner Certification through the International Code Council. This certification demonstrates her knowledge and commitment to site and building accessibility.
It is critical to apply accessible design principles in order to create more inclusive spaces for everyone. Complying with the Americans with Disability Act (ADA), and other building accessibility codes can be a complex and challenging process. Heather has over ten years of experience working with these standards and helps us smoothly navigate through each design phase to achieve accessibility and avoid costly complications down the line.
With this certification Heather can perform:
- Plan reviews to verify they are designed to be in compliance with all applicable federal, state, and/or local accessibility codes before construction begins;
- Site inspections to verify a site meets all applicable accessibility requirements during or after the completion of construction;
- Site assessments to identify any items or areas of non-compliance in existing facilities;
- Consulting in the development of strategies for on-going proactive accessibility needs.
