Commercial Building INspections and the ADA
- Commercial Building INspections and the ADA
When it comes to commercial inspections of any publicly-accessed building, some of the most important aspects of the inspection is the structure’s compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Whether your building is a retail establishment, a restaurant or a industrial facility, adhering to building requirements is of paramount importance at all times. Commercial building inspectors in Denver are schooled on just what building requirements fall under the ADA and understand accessible design standards for any and all commercial buildings.
These design standards, in place since March of 2011, call for a variety of building requirements intended to make buildings more easily accessible to the disabled. Many of these requirements have very specific aspects including placement of railings, ramps, stairs, elevators and even lighting and door placement. Commercial building inspectors should know these requirements and how to make sure your building is in compliance. From the slope of the front walk to the rail next to the toilet, a good and thorough inspection will call to light any and all issues for your particular type of building, from retail to industrial. Being completely knowledgeable about the differences between a home-based business, a retail establishment, a multi-family residential unit, an educational facility or a that of a government entity is paramount to actually meeting or exceeding those building standards. Make sure that the commercial inspector has the knowledge and experience needed to ensure total compliance. Not doing so can lead to stiff fines and possible closure until codes are adhered to.
