Meet Accessible Parking Requirements Easily

Meet Accessible Parking Requirements Easily


Commercial building owners, builders, and contractors must meet ADA compliance standards in Texas, ensuring all renovations and new construction projects for public access buildings include accommodations for those with physical disabilities.


These guidelines apply to:


Publicly funded buildings constructed after 1970. These structures must meet the current ADA compliance guidelines set by Texas law. These facilities include government institutions, detention centers, military bases, and legislative offices. Under state law, owners must renovate the property to meet the 2012 Texas Accessibility Standards.


Construction or renovation projects privately funded with public access renovated or constructed in 1992 forward. When a construction project costs more than $50,000, the plans must get approved by an accessibility specialist.


Failing to comply with these guidelines can cost the property owner a hefty sum, but that sum increases by one each day that they do not meet the requirements.


In addition to the building itself meeting ADA requirements, the associated parking lot must do the same. 


Every Parking Lot Is Different


The ADA requires a specific minimum size and number of spaces to get reserved for the mobility impaired, based on the capacity and size of the parking lot. Smaller lots will require fewer reserved spots than larger lots. 


Personalized needs may also come into play. For instance, if you have a medical practice, it might be prudent to add a few extra reserved spots just in case. By doing so, you can provide enough disabled parking for everyone who requires accessible parking. 


If you're unsure of what you need to do to make your parking lot ADA compliant, you can't afford to guess what you need to do. If you guess wrong, you could be at risk of fines or other penalties. It isn't a risk worth taking!


Avoid ADA Non-Compliance Penalties In Texas


No one likes to get in trouble. Especially not reputable business owners. Don't let a simple oversight or misunderstanding cost your business and your reputation! In Texas, ADA non-compliance penalties can be expensive and even lead to a business license suspension.


As you can imagine, this is a very expensive penalty that is challenging to overcome!
