KEG performed a field evaluation of The Centre for compliance with the 2010 American with Disabilities Act Accessibility Guidelines (ADAAG). The evaluation and the resulting opinions of compliance were initial components of the facilities’ ADA transition plan. The assessment included a table of the features appraised during the site visit, stating an opinion of compliance for each feature, the location within the building where the feature was found, and any dimensional or operational factors that may have affected its compliance with the requirements of the ADAAG. 

 

KEG’s evaluation included the following ADAAG requirements:

  • The accessible approach and horizontal circulation for stability, accessible route, and dimension requirements;
  • Internal ramps for slope, railing, width, and landing requirements;
  • Accessible signage at all exterior entrances;
  • All entrance doorway dimensions including wall clear space, threshold heights, door handle heights, and door force requirements;
  • Interior door dimensions and accessible requirements;
