AMA Architects offers expert accessibility review services to architects, owners, developers, building managers, and contractors in their effort towards compliance with ADA Standards, Fair Housing Act, Title 24 of the NYC BC, and more.

The significant categories of Accessibility, known as POUR, refer to perceivable, operable, understandable, and robust.
