We understand that to keep a competitive edge, hotels, and resorts must deliver experience-driven amenities and services to their patrons.
Our ADA Accessibility Specialists assess any potential or existing accessibility barriers that may affect a guest's satisfaction or result in a legal issue. LCM team members develop corrective strategies to help the hospitality industry comply with ADA hospitality accessibility standards and requirements. We identify ADA deficiencies and find appropriate solutions and develop strategic plans to address accessibility compliance for all public areas of hotels and resorts. Our specialties include complex analysis of guest room dispersion and path of travel obligations.
Applying deep knowledge of ADA regulations and architectural backgrounds, we support hotel owners by assessing properties, reviewing plans for alterations and additions, recommending remedial work, and providing accessibility training for facilities staff. As an architecture practice LCM has the ability to prepare drawings to correct ADA deficiencies. We also consult with hotel owners and attorneys when accessibility complaints have been filed and litigation or settlements are pending. We have also served as Department of Justice approved third party inspectors when required in settlements or consent decrees.
