Although the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was passed in 1990, buildings across the nation are still working to catch up with the required construction codes that make many physical sites user-friendly. Even though the civil rights movement had been going long before the passing of the ADA, few buildings already had accommodations in place. Because of this, buildings built prior to the new laws were anything but compliant with them. This important feature of a building enables those who need alternate accommodations to be able to access what most other people take for granted.
Many facilities, including industrial buildings, weren’t built for handicap access. Though modern buildings have addressed the Americans with Disabilities Act by incorporating accessibilities like low-rise sinks and wheelchair ramps, some older buildings are still out of compliance with the law.
For any buildings that aren’t yet compliant or need upgrades or more accessibility, spring and summer are the ideal times to work on these internal company issues. Whether your business needs work done on restrooms, offices, or exteriors, Base Construction can help to ensure your building is compliant with the law and offers those with handicaps the same access as everyone else.
