MSU found a way to renew its long-range accessibility compliance plans through an efficient facilities evaluation process that was within its budget.
LCM conducted a campus accessibility evaluation to help Missouri State University update its ADA Title II Transition Plan. Tailoring the process to a limited budget, LCM evaluated all campus routes and buildings constructed before 1993.
We documented the facilities assessment findings in a comprehensive report. The document identified noncompliant elements found in each building with recommendations for alterations as necessary to remove barriers. Highest priority for modifications was assigned to elements impeding Title II requirements for program accessibility. Other noncompliant elements would be part of ongoing construction and modernization projects.
An architect from the University Architect’s office guided LCM accessibility specialists through the buildings, giving us the benefit of local knowledge. Also, this was a cost-efficient opportunity to train a University employee in the accessibility assessment process for future operations.
