Need ADA signs for a retail build out?

Posted by Frank Murch | Mar 27, 2018 10:00:00 AM

High Quality Tenant Finish Outs are fast and complex. Selecting the perfect spot for the business is only the first step. The next part, the tenant finish must match the vision. The layout, the fixtures, the colors and the finish need to support the success of the business. Whether it’s a Law Firm, A Doctor’s / Dentist’s office, A Restaurant, a Specialty Shop or a Custom Boutique, everything is about the tenant finish. Designing and building a highly functional, attractive interior space to support your success is not easy. In many cases you are adding or removing walls, building offices, conference rooms and bathrooms, painting, installing light fixtures, and ADA Signs. But every step falls a little further behind.

Posted by Frank Murch | Mar 20, 2018 10:00:00 AM

When a builder or remodeler starts a job, there is a lot of time to get everything done. Slowly, step by step the project falls a little behind. At the end, the building is almost done, the contract may have penalty clauses that are close at hand and there are a couple of overlooked trades that have not been scheduled. The infamous ones are the elevator, the paint and the signs. At Signs for San Diego we make ADA signs in-house. There are a lot of advantages with this.

Would you fail ADA Sign inspection?

Posted by Frank Murch | Dec 10, 2015 8:30:00 AM

Did your ADA sign fail inspection? Many designers view ADA as a building code. It is really a civil rights law. These are two different things. Building inspectors and Planning review and sign off on plans using interpretations of the law and local policies. Buildings, Architects and Designers think the project is compliant because it passes. The reality is there can be ADA issues resulting in a lawsuit. This can start small like the lack of accessible parking, railings are not compliant or signs are wrong.
