Welcome to Accessibility Consultants. We are a full service consulting group on the Texas Accessibility Standards, Fair Housing, ANSI A117.1 ADA-ABA. and Outdoor Play, Playground Safety, Design and Accessibility.
Meyer Inspection Services LLC dba
Our goal is to aide designers and building owners in the process of barrier removal for the disabled community in the built environment. Since the adoption of the various federal laws, the US has made great strides toward this, but we are a long way from being where we should be. As a consulting group, we see most of the work in the design stage and then follow-up with a post construction inspection.. Architects and designers generally must have their drawings reviewed for compliance to the ADAAG, ANSI, Fair Housing or the State of Texas for the Architectural Barriers, (TAS). That process is going well, but there is still some learning to be done. Probably the biggest hurdle is the general public and those entities that like to build their project taking the risk of no building permits, no professional input and general contractors that do not follow the plans. It is a team effort....Before we get further into the site, a few comments that have been said to me over the years.
You may have found us by a search engine looking for an accessibility specialist, accessibility guidelines, interest in accessibility, have a loved one needing home improvements, or just any information on accessibility. The internet is flooded with such information and it can be overwhelming. Understanding the various accessibility laws, rules and players is complicated. This is where we can help and direct you.
An architect told a regulatory agency that a Yoga studio he was designing did not need to be accessible. "Have you ever seen a disabled person doing Yoga"..........
A hotel manager remodeled his banquet rooms and had to install accessible restrooms, loosing some lobby space. "Why do I need accessible bathrooms. We do not get that many disabled persons at the banquets."
Do not tell me about my restrooms being non-compliant, if I do not know, then I am not at fault .....
Why is he complaining about the transfer shower, he does not look disabled.
