COVID-19 UPDATE - March 24, 2020
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we want to update you about our efforts to continue assisting clients while also protecting the health and safety of our staff.
We have set up our staff to work remotely from home and instituted a work-from-home policy for the foreseeable future. We are completely connected to our office technology through secure remote desktop protocol. Be assured that while we are transitioning to this new arrangement, we are available Monday through Friday to accept new projects and set up site inspections.
TDLR has issued the following statement regarding TAS Site Inspection due dates: TDLR is "Extending by 60 days all building inspection deadlines in the Elimination of Architectural Barriers Program for any inspections due in March, April, and May to help business owners and licensees who may be struggling to have buildings inspected during this time and allow buildings to be used in case they are needed immediately as part of the COVID-19 response."
However, we are currently responding to inspection requests in many areas of Texas. Please contact us at or , and we will work with you to provide the service that you need.
We appreciate and value your continued patronage, and we want to work together to continue to provide you with the quality service you expect from us.
We hope that you are all safe, healthy and well, Todd Lozano
