The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) has been the law for over 20 years now. Many existing project built some time ago are out of compliance and need corrections. We have designed corrective remodeling projects for many clients to need to come into compliance with the ADA and all other disability related regulations.
Most Las Vegas architectural clients are primarily interested in having a nice looking project and coming within budget. These are always the first thoughts upon the start of a new project. Many clients only thing of hiring formally trained and certified ADA architect for their Las Vegas, Nevada or Arizona or California work, after they are being sued for ADA violations. While this is not the most glamorous part of the work neglecting full and complete compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act is a requirement by federal law. Most property owners don’t understand that ADA compliance is not enforced by Las Vegas area building departments like it is in California. Therefore there are undoubtedly construction projects being built right now that will be out of compliance with the ADA when finished.
Ken Small is an International Code Conference Licensed (Accessibility Regulation) Building Inspector and Plan Examiner. Ken (ICC AI/PE) and Christine Small spent the year prior to the implementation of the ADA “2010 Standards” touring the USA to provide trainings to hundreds of architects and other design professionals. We were hired by a major architect training firm to create over 8 hours of ADA related AIA Certified learning programs for architects and to tour while giving the trainings. We are “Experts”.
As ADA Architects in Las Vegas we are constantly designing projects both for Las Vegas and other locations that are fully ADA compliant and designing corrections for existing project repairs. If you are in receipt of an ADA related complaint please come to see us for a free initial consultation in our office.
ADA is required for commercial projects. There is no “Grandfathered”.
