- Identify noncompliant accessibility features of the buildings
- Identify noncompliant accessibility features of the site routes connecting buildings to accessible parking areas meant to serve the building
- Estimate and categorize corrections to fix the noncompliant features in a manner that allows NMSU to sort the information and make decisions about how to improve accessibility
- Provide a means for the university to track the status of projects or their completion as funding becomes available
Each evaluator followed a step-by-step process to evaluate and document ADA deficiencies in the field and in the office, using a custom web-based ADA checklist that ARC developed for this project. The evaluators identified 1,157 capital improvement projects (CIPs) to correct the ADA deficiencies.
ARC developed a project web site that allows NMSU to sort and view all the project CIPs and deficiencies, organized by building. Each CIP is illustrated with photos and cross-referenced to annotated site and floor plans. NMSU facilities staff use the web site to plan and execute projects to correct ADA deficiencies.
