The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) affects every property owner. Since July 1990, businesses must now designate the proper number of clearly identified handicapped-accessible parking stalls and required van parking spaces regardless of company size. Additionally, ramps, accessible parking and designated walkways must also meet specific slope and size requirements in order to be considered compliant.
A newly constructed parking lot must typically be striped to ADA standards and proper signage implemented before an operating permit is issued; this is true of both commercial and large residential properties. In addition, a minimum number of parking spaces must be present per 1,000 square feet of a utilized facility.
Given the proper scope, CI can ensure your parking lot, ramps and walkways meet the current ADA compliance requirements with the installation of proper signage, striping, and concrete ramps and handrails, ensuring an excellent experience for your customers and clients.
