Trends In Company Compliance Practices - Site Observation

E&A has observed that as there is increased litigation under both the Fair Housing Act and ADA, our clients have greatly increased their requests for our services during construction. E&A typically performs one or more accessibility site observations to help assure that contractors construct in compliance with the accessibility requirements construction documents prepared by the Owner's architect / engineers. These services are a follow-up activity to the Accessibility Design Reviews (Plan reviews) that we have previously performed. Unfortunately, we note many significant deviations that cause large exposure to the Owner who is responsible for non-discrimination under the ADA, and to the Owner and Architect, who are responsible under the Fair Housing Act.
