ADA Inspection Services, Expert Witness, Guest Speaker, Training

ASTM E 2018 describes three levels of ADA Inspections: Tier I, Tier II and Tier III. 
ADAIN offers all three levels of inspection.  So why three levels?  Price, and different levels of thoroughness.  Each level comes with a different price.  Level I is the lowest price and provides limited information.  Level II offers more specific information and costs more than Level I.  Level III is the most complete inspection and costs the most.  See below for more information about the three levels.

Please contact directly for pricing information.


Tier I: Visual Accessibility Survey

The scope of this Tier I survey/inspection is limited to visual observations only.  No measurements or counts are taken by the inspector.  Only a basic overview of the general condition of the building is provided referencing the 2010 ADA Standards for Accessible Design under Title II for State and Local Government Facilities and Title III for Public Accommodations and Commercial Facilities, excluding fire/smoke alarm systems and emergency light systems . These services do not compare the installation to local, state, or national building codes. Due to the visual nature of the Tier I survey, the reliability of the results will be less accurate than a Tier II survey, which includes representative sampling measurements and counts. This survey can be completed before or after a property installation or alteration. 


Tier II: Abbreviated Accessibility Survey

This Tier II survey/inspection is an abbreviated (limited) accessibility survey subject to representative sampling, in accordance with modified protocol in ASTM E 2018, referencing the 2010 ADA Standards for Accessible Design, Title II for State and Local Government Facilities, Title III for Public Accommodations and Commercial Facilities, excluding fire/smoke alarm systems and emergency light systems. These services do not compare the installation to local, state, or national building codes.  The scope of this survey is limited to the following areas:  building history, parking, ramps, entrances/exits, paths of travel, elevators, public toilet rooms, and ADA compliant guest rooms.  The inspector takes appropriate measurements and counts to complete a checklist for Tier II surveys.  This survey does not have the depth, scope or detailed measurements and counts required to comply with a Tier III, Full Accessibility survey.  The results of the survey may be provided in either a checklist or narrative report format, or both. This survey can be completed before or after a property installation or alteration.


Tier III: Full Accessibility Survey

The consultant will conduct this thorough Tier III ADA inspection service in accordance with modified protocol in ASTM E 2018, referencing the 2010 ADA Standards for Accessible Design, Title II for State and Local Government Facilities, Title III for Public Accommodations and Commercial Facilities, excluding fire/smoke alarm systems and emergency light systems. These services do not compare the installation to local, state, or national building codes.  Such survey should address each visible and measurable element and space within and without a facility. The results of the survey may be provided in a written Property Condition Report in either a checklist or narrative report format, or both. This survey can be completed before or after a property installation or alteration.
