CPM Offers Turn-Key ADA Upgrade Program
California Pavement Maintenance Company, Inc. (CPM), one of the West’s largest and most successful pavement maintenance companies, now offers a complete turn-key solution to Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) upgrades for large shopping centers and commercial real estate holdings.
In the past, a property owner or manager would have to find competent design, permitting, project management and construction talent, each with ADA knowledge and expertise and somehow get them to work together to successful and compliant completion.
CPM now brings together all of the elements necessary for a successful ADA upgrade project under one roof and offers a two-phased, design-build product.
Under a preliminary agreement CPM accomplishes the following:
CPM will evaluate the site for Architectural barriers and deficiencies in compliance with the American’s With Disabilities Act (ADA) that impede access to the property by individuals with physical disabilities including:
- Access from Public Transportation
- Parking Spaces and Aisles
- Van Access
- Parking Signage
- Passenger Loading Zone
- Exterior Paths of Travel
- Curb Ramps
- Protruding Objects
- Exterior Ramps
- Exterior Stairs
- Hand Rails
- Entrance Signage
CPM will then prepare, for the Owner’s written approval, a preliminary estimate utilizing area, volume, or similar conceptual estimating techniques. CPM shall make written recommendations to the Owner.
OWNER’S ELECTION TO PROCEED
If the Owner elects to proceed with the Project beyond the Preliminary Design-Build Services provided in this Agreement, the Owner and CPM enter into an additional agreement for the completion of the design and the construction of the Project.
If the Owner elects not to proceed with the Project, the Owner shall have no further obligation to CPM other than to pay for the preliminary work and to indemnify CPM if the Owner chooses to otherwise use the documents.
PROCEEDING WITH THE DESIGN-BUILD AGREEMENT
If the complexity demands, CPM will retain a competent Architect with solid experience with ADA projects to complete the design and work with the permitting authority to get the project approved. Utilization of a Registered Professional Architect assures Americans with Disabilities Act and California Building Code compliance, as well as local approval. CPM works with a number of Architects (throughout the western U.S.) specializing in ADA upgrade design. Using a relatively local architect keeps costs down and allows for frequent Architect jobsite visits.
CPM will assign an in-house project manager tasked with bringing the project in on time, true to the design and with minimal disruption to the projects tenants. The Project Manager will have experience with many ADA upgrade projects and will also be extremely experienced working in large commercial, retail and industrial environments.
CPM has in-house concrete, asphalt pave, sealcoat, stripe and signage crews. The use of in-house crews allows for the ultimate in control by the project manager. These crews are lead by seasoned, capable foremen with substantial ADA work experience.
