What is an ADA Survey

The Accessibility Survey consists of elements or components which do not comply with the appropriate ADA standard (ADA 1991 Standard or ADA 2010 Standard). We offer two tiers based on several factors such as: client priority, client property type, client pre-purchase due diligence, and client desire to make alterations/renovations.

Subject to representative sampling that completes a checklist contained within the ASTM standard. This tier often accompanies a standard Property Condition Assessment for managers and lenders. Accessibility is one of the components of due diligence when purchasing or refinancing a building - poor accessibility decreases a building's value.

Involves a full in-depth survey to report compliance with ADA Title III and ADAAG. This survey addresses each accessible element and space within and/or without the facility and entails comprehensive measurements and counts. Captioned photographs are provided in the narrative report. Property owners, lenders, investors, and managers request Tier III as they are responsible for alterations needed to become compliant and have the most exposure to liability.

Business owners, property owners, and property managers are encouraged to recognize the importance of the Accessibility Survey report findings and to take a proactive approach toward compliance. The report is broken into the components specified as client priority in the proposal. Each component will contain inspected elements and determine if each element is compliant. Any non-compliant element will also be separated into a narrative summary with a detailed explanation and a captioned photograph. Video may also be included if warranted. A summary page is included to prioritize elements and reference any local, state, or federal requirements. Click Here to See Sample Report

The physical report itself is transmitted via email using cloud-based technology. You can view, download, print, and forward the report at your discretion. Pages may be viewed on a monitor or uploaded to a Power Point for a larger audience to view on a screen. Any additional documents will be uploaded into the appendix.

Facility size and survey type, along with the number of elements contained in the scope, determines the inspection time. Most inspections can be completed in a few hours while larger facilities or site inspections may take longer. These factors will impact the time period for report generation. Expedited reports may be generated for a fee.

The components for an accessibility survey can categorized into several main areas. A person looking to purchase commercial property, or a current business owner can choose the area(s) relevant to the property type for an accessibility survey.
