LCM Architects is a leading firm in providing comprehensive accessibility compliance services to public and private institutions, including colleges and universities. With a focus on achieving compliance with ADA Title II or Title III accessibility requirements, we assist in the development of plans for achieving access to programs and the ongoing removal of barriers on campuses.
Our team has vast experience in conducting accessibility assessments, ranging from surveying specific buildings to surveying entire campuses with hundreds of buildings, parking lots, and exterior routes. Our assessment reports are detailed, identifying noncompliant elements, and including remediation options, prioritization, architectural drawings, and cost estimates for barrier removal. Additionally, we provide accessibility design guidelines, plan and construction reviews, and universal design consulting for new construction projects. We also assist educational institutions with running stakeholder meetings and assessments of programs and services for individuals with disabilities.
Eliminating noncompliant conditions identified through the assessment process is crucial in avoiding accessibility complaints. However, if a university does receive a complaint or is a party to a settlement agreement with the U.S. Department of Justice, having an accessibility plan in place and being able to demonstrate progress in achieving compliance is advantageous. This is where LCM can be of immense help.
Our plans become a long-term roadmap for facilities planning and scheduling for future alterations, renovations, and new construction on a single campus or for a multi-campus university system. We help consult with university systems, providing our services to every campus location to ensure compliance.
