Through the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation (TDLR), the State of Texas requires all construction projects for public spaces to comply with the Texas Accessibility Standards (TAS), which is equivalent to the federal 2010 Americans with Disability Act (ADA) Standards for Accessible Design.
If the cost of construction is $50,000 or more, TDLR requires the following steps to be completed:
Project Registration - at the time the project will be submitted for permit,
Plan Review – construction documents must be submitted to a RAS within 20 business days of the issue date,
Site Inspection – to be completed within one year of the construction completion date.
Our Registered Accessibility Specialists, R. Todd Lozano (RAS #93) and Konny Deffner (RAS #152), are licensed by TDLR to perform Texas Accessibility Standards (TAS) Plan Reviews and Site Inspections. Their experience with TDLR and the Texas Accessibility Standards dates back to 1993, so they are qualified to provide the best service possible and can help clients find viable, compliant solutions for their TAS-related issues. They can also provide assessments for the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
