LCM has worked with the Chicago Housing Authority since 2005 to ensure accessibility compliance for new, redeveloped, and rehabilitated properties.
Plan & Construction Reviews
Surveys & Reports
Third Party Certification
The Chicago Housing Authority and its project partners consistently rely on LCM to ensure compliance with UFAS, FHA, ADA, ADAAG, and the Chicago Building Code for multifamily properties. As part of a Voluntary Compliance Agreement with HUD, CHA retained LCM as a third party certifier to verify compliance with applicable accessibility regulations and code requirements in Senior, Family, and Scattered Site Housing developments, as well as common areas at residential sites. We also surveyed properties and reviewed policies and procedures to identify physical and procedural issues which would have a discriminatory impact on people with disabilities and to develop an ADA Title II Section 504 Transition Plan. We are currently providing accessibility plan and construction reviews, third party certification, and a Transition Plan update.
