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.
