ACCESSIBILITY ASSESSMENTS

Our inspectors are thoroughly trained and knowledgeable in all applicable laws and regulations. What can we do to help you meet the guidelines?

      • Plan Reviews - New Construction or Rehabs You send us the architectural and engineering drawing, and we review the handicap accessibility compliance for all aspects of the construction. We report to you and the architect (usually by e-mail) within one week any non-compliance findings or issues. After we receive an acceptable response, we send a final approval.
      • Existing Property Inspections We inspect existing properties, develop a list of modifications needed to meet applicable guidelines and provide estimates of the cost of modifications.
          • Construction Monitoring (New Construction and Rehabilitations) It is cost effective to inspect the project during and immediately upon completion of construction. Construction is not always executed in accordance with the plans. Catching mistakes early can save significant amounts of money.

Zeffert & Associates offers a package to include a plan review and 3-7 site inspections (depending upon how large your property is) to guarantee all guidelines are met and subcontractors execute according to plans and specificiations. Learn more about our Accessibility Program!

CAPITAL NEEDS ASSESSMENTS

When tax credits or other federal funding sources are utilized for acquisition and rehabilitation of an existing property, agencies, syndicators and banks frequently require that an independent assessor perform a Capital Needs Assessment (CNA). In addition, HUD and Rural Development require CNA's under a variety of circumstances including transfers, rehabs and requests for rent increases.shutterstock umbrella
