Accessible

sol agua terra celebrates the ability in all persons and incorporates diverse approaches to accessibility into our project designs.  For more than 10 years, we have performed site accessibility surveys for private property owners; public school districts; multi-family housing developers; and local government entities. 

 

We are trained in interpreting Fair Housing Act Accessibility Guidelines (FHAAG); Uniform Federal Accessibility Standards (UFAS); ADA Accessibility Guidelines for Buildings and Facilities (ADAAG); and ICC/ANSI A117.1, among others, as they apply to individual projects. 

As an International Code Council Certified Accessibility Inspector / Plans Examiner, we provide plan review services for educational facilities, state government buildings & campuses, assisted-care facilities, recreational facilities, and a variety of municipal and private buildings.
