He oversees all interactions with the Approving Authorities during crucial, early stages of the design process and has continuous involvement during the construction documentation and construction phases.

About RK Access

RK Access represents our continued mission to make architecture more accessible to all. Our mandate is to design spaces that are safe and inviting for all people, especially those for whom design is often a human-made barrier when it should be a human-made connector; we continually research and advocate for higher accessibility standards. We stand firm in our commitment to provide design expertise for persons with disabilities beyond the minimum barrier-free legislation requirements.
