ADA Design - Switchback Ramps

Stonefield has a team of civil engineering experts that specialize in retro-fitting public right-of-way and private property to comply with ADA Standards for Accessible Design.  Historically sites have been constructed without these standards in mind.  Our process includes an initial assessment of existing conditions, detailed design plans to indicate necessary modifications, and construction administration to ensure the design plans are implemented. In the case where longer ramps are needed to create the required slope to meet a grade change, we design switchbacks to break up the longer spans.  We have successfully implemented switchbacks throughout the Northeast.
