The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) prohibits discrimination based on disability. This law protects the rights of individuals with physical limitations that may impact their ability to get around.
ADA code specifies that parking lots must have the minimum required number of marked handicap stalls, and must not have obstacles or conditions that limit people from freely moving around. Parking lots in the state of Florida are bound to this code, as well as Chapter 5 of the Florida Building Code in relation to ADA.
More often than not, parking lots are not fully compliant. Something as simple as too few ADA parking stalls or as complex as not having accessible ramps and sidewalk paths can expose you to potentially costly lawsuits.
Our engineers specialize in ADA inspections and design, lending a cost effective, engineered solution to making your parking lot compliant. We can help you determine the minimum required number of handicap spaces based on the size of your lot, as well as the best placement and correct markings for those spaces.
