Phil Kaplan, ADA Consultant

Phil worked for the City of Palm Springs, California as the ADA Coordinator 1992-2008, as a member of the Building Department team. As such, he provided disability access plan check service, on site inspections, guidance to the Planning and Public Works Departments, and served as the disability access liaison for the community. He has significant experience working with architects, developers and contractors, helping them understand disability access regulations and the rationale behind them. He not only enforces the regulations for new construction projects but also solves access problems with pre-existing buildings. His extensive background delivering solutions to problematic accessibility issues uniquely qualifies him to do this for you. Finally, because Phil Kaplan has been a wheelchair user since 1970, the result of a spinal cord injury from an auto accident, he has both personal and professional knowledge of the field. As an ADA compliance consultant, he makes a difference by eliminating the barriers facing people with disabilities. It is his desire to assist you in doing the same.
