Accessibility Specialists for the Disabled

In accordance with Texas Architectural Barriers Rules,
adopted June 1, 1994, all new construction and all
construction renovations within the State of Texas must
comply with at least the minimum requirements for
handicapped accessibility set forth by the Architectural
Barriers Act - Texas Civil Statutes Article 9102.  All new
construction and / or construction renovation projects of
$50,000 or more must have their Construction Documents
(Working Drawings and Project Manual / Specifications)
must be formally submitted for an accessibility
no later than the twentieth (20th) day after the
design professional issues the construction documents for
Building Permit or for construction.  If the Owner does not
use the services of a Design Professional, the Owner must
still submit their documents!  Please visit the Texas
Department of Licensing and Regulation website for more
