U.S. Barrier Surveying Company (USBS) provides onsite ADA barrier
surveys of new and existing buildings and facilities. Our
surveys can cover everything on your site, including all exterior
and interior portions of the buildings, and include a complete
assessment of the condition of each element, space or feature
required to be accessible. We include color photographs, a
description of each non-conforming condition with recorded
measurements, the estimated costs to remediate, and citations to the
applicable code sections from the Americans with Disabilities Act
Accessibility Guidelines (ADAAG). All of our barrier surveys undergo a
strict quality check by the Survey Supervisor or Plan Manager prior
to finalization and issuance to the client. The information is then
presented to the client in a professional format.
