ADA Compliance

  • ADA Compliance Audits
  • Transition Plans
  • Architectural Barrier Removal Plans
  • ADA Compliance Modifications/Alternations

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), a federal law concerning accessibility for the disabled, established a basic civil right to expand access to the built environment. LPA assists in determining specific compliance status for each project and develops an appropriate plan of action. The LPA ADA Compliance Program involves a careful examination of creative alternative solutions, which are cost effective and represent the greatest value for our clients.

Renovation / Retrofit / Reuse

  • Building Evaluation/Code Analysis
  • Fire/Life Safety Retrofit
  • Renovation and Adaptive Reuse
  • Handicap Accessibility
  • Facility Modernization

LPA offers a total scope of services from site needs surveys/inspections, program verification, cost analysis, ADA upgrades, budget assessments, state submittals processing, construction document preparation to contract administration. Of particular emphasis for a modernization project is effective and comprehensive budgeting at the inception of a project and the establishment of an adequate contingency to cover unforeseen building and site conditions.

Through the integration of our in-house interiors department, we have transformed the perception of modernizations from a chore to that of a "Campus Enrichment" opportunity. Together with rigorous cost estimating and the establishment of appropriate expectations, LPA's modernization concept transforms the facility to a state-of-the-art amenity for the benefit of the user groups.

  • Development Feasibility Studies
  • Governmental Processing/Entitlement Services
  • Public Workshops/Community Presentations
  • Renderings and Architectural Models
