STOCKTON – A Stockton architect recently became a specialist in the codes, regulations, and standards that govern accessible building and site design.
Doug Davis, a principal architect with WMB Architects in Stockton, has become a certified access specialist (CASp) under a certification program administered by the Division of the State Architect. The goal of the CASp program is to provide the public with professionals who are experienced and knowledgeable in the codes, regulations, and standards that govern accessible building and site design.
Certified access specialists can evaluate existing facilities and plans for proposed construction and provide opinions on compliance with the American with Disabilities Act and the accessibility provisions of the California Building Code.
Davis has 15 years of experience in the field of commercial architecture. His role at WMB will now expand to include internal peer review of the firm’s current and future projects for accessibility compliance and on-site evaluation of existing facilities for the firm’s clients.
