Understanding ADA Grandfather Clauses:  Do You Really Want Your Customers  To Use Grandpa’s Toilet?

Two senior men enjoying coffee and a newspaper.Many businesses believe that a “grandfather clause” protects them from complying with current ADA Building Standards and use this as an excuse to not move forward to make their facility accessible.

  •  We explain why these clauses exist and why it is NOT to your advantage to use them.
  • We explain the different clauses.
  • We explain that being  “historical”  does not mean that your building can be non-accessible.
  • Do you want your customers to be comfortable or do you want to try to save money and be stubborn facing “change” ?
  • Do you ever wonder why so many Florida buildings are torn down rather than remodeled?
  • We explain the different Grandfather Clauses and how the could affect your business.
  • We show you why investing in updating your facility is smart business.

 All workshops are customizable for our client’s audience.  Please contact us to review your needs and get on our schedule.
