We offer consultation, facilities evaluation, and training services customized to your industry.
Architecture & Design
Assistology is a City of Omaha, Tier II certified SEB. As your accessibility and inclusion consultant, we take your firm beyond the ADA minimums in design to incorporate the human experience throughout the design process. We offer consultation in all project programming and design phases to ensure the most functionally accessible design outcomes. We train your team to have the best understanding of impairment and how that applies to the design process in order to strengthen your message during project bid and interviews.
ADA Accessibility Surveys
While the American’s with Disabilities Act (ADA) created mandated accessibility standards to which our built environments must comply, many spaces continue to contain barriers to free access to spaces and services. The combined cost of assessment, capital cost of improvements and avoidance of litigation is very cost effective contrasted with risk of injury, the unknown and the cost of litigation.
Assistology can provide a comprehensive interior &/or exterior Accessibility Survey in accordance with the 2010 ADA Standards. Deliverable to the client are a comprehensive ADA audit as outlined for Title III of the ADA Standards. Upon completion of the audit a detailed report will be provided that includes appropriate pictures and recommendations for any updates or improvement to be made to obtain full compliance with Title III ADA requirements. Additionally, I provide further recommendations to improve access to space, goods and services in accordance with the Principles of Universal Design.
As an Inclusive Design Specialist we provide training on understanding impairment as it applies to product design. Our inclusive design consultation services focus on the Principles of Universal Design (UD) and Inclusive Design (ID) to best enable your team to understand the consumer’s interactions with your product and integrate more effective design processes. We provide product design review to help identify potential challenges that various users may experience and enhance the inclusive design options.
