Plan Review Services

US Access Consultants, Inc.provides accessibility plan review services for drawings, site work details, and specifications for new construction and tenant improvements.  We review schematic design, design development, stages of construction documents, and plan check submittal construction documents. Plan reviews will identify the most expensive barriers to fix, including door maneuvering clearances and toilet room layouts before they are constructed.  US Access Consultants, Inc.can accommodate clients with detailed or introductory plan reviews, as well as incorporate comprehensive reports which include thorough summaries and categorized listings of each barrier. These reviews can be integrated into the consulting process in the initial concept study or as late as construction documents.

 

From our experience, plan reviews ultimately based on 95% - 100% complete construction documents will typically find 50% - 60% of the potentially non-compliant conditions that would be built into the facility when it is complete.  Some barriers, which cannot be determined from the documents, will not become evident until shop drawing or submittal stage.  Other barriers are questions of construction quality and product detail that will not become evident until field observation.  The design and construction of an accessible building is very much a team effort on behalf of the owner, the architect, and the contractor, and must be diligently pursued from the design phase through the completion of construction.  In addition to the plan review services we provide, we typically stay involved through the course of construction to ensure that all elements are identified and properly addressed.
