Brooklyn Apartment Complex Could Open Following Our Commercial Ramp Installation

Overview

Accessing some public areas can be difficult for disabled people. Apartment complexes must be fully compliant with ADA guidelines in terms of ensuring access to the disabled to all their public areas. Though ADA doesn’t cover strictly residential private apartments and homes, public access areas of apartment communities fall under the act’s accessibility provisions. Living Free Home recently assisted an apartment complex in Williamsburg section of Brooklyn to stay ADA-compliant by installing a commercial ramp that provides convenient access to wheelchair users.

The Challenge

This apartment complex has open access to the public walkway and gardens under the Williamsburg Bridge for area residents to enjoy. However, the pitch of the walkway was too steep for wheelchair-bound residents. The problem was that the city would not allow the complex to open until they rectified the situation. The client called us to find an effective solution to address the accessibility challenge. Our customized solutions and years of experience in the industry made the client choose us.

The Solution

On receiving an urgent call from this client, we worked with the general contractor to design and fabricate a special ramp to suit the site. We asked our fabrication team to work overtime for four days prior to Christmas to get this done so residents could move into their apartments.

Our team was on-site within a week and they finished the ramp in two days. The city inspectors approved the new access and lifted the restraints on the building opening.

To meet any such accessibility and installation requirements in your area, call us at 888-545-4846!
