Architectural Plan Reviews

MTC helps architects, engineers, designers and planners ensure buildings are accessible for people with disabilities.

The Americans with Disabilities Act requires all public facilities to be accessible for everyone. Whether a facility is a building, a park, a sprawling institution, or a complete city – brand new or dated – it must meet certain ADA standards. If facilities don’t meet ADA requirements, the consequences could be costly.

Contact MTC  to analyze the accessibility of our designs.

16th Street Mall – Denver, CO

Accessibility Survey

 MTC was selected by ZGF Architects of Portland, Oregon, to conduct a comprehensive accessibility survey of Denver’s 16th Street Mall. The U.S. Access Board has developed proposed guidelines for the public right-of-way. MTC used these guidelines to assess the 16th Street Mall and found that there were still many areas, which were not well defined. This led to extensive consultation, with representatives from the U.S. Access Board, to resolve ambiguities.

Kaiser Permanente

Facility Assessment and Architectural Plan Reviews

MTC completed a comprehensive facility accessibility assessment of over 2 million square feet of medical, administrative, and support space, operated by Kaiser Permanente. The survey identified accessibility issues, in each facility, and proposed specific solutions, costs, and priorities for accomplishing those modifications. Kaiser has retained MTC, for architectural plan reviews and accessibility audits, for all their new construction and renovation projects.
