The ADA Standards have been established to create design requirements for the construction and alteration of facilities subject to the law. These enforceable standards apply to many places that include areas of public accommodation, commercial facilities, and local and state government facilities.
Failure to comply with ADA building compliance can lead to lead to serious financial penalties, which can start as much as $55,000 to $75,000 for a first-time violation, and a second violation rising to $110,000 to $150,000.
