John Q Hammons
PROBLEM: In 2012, John Q Hammons had several hotels scheduled for remodel within the following year. ADA standards required all of its remodeled hotels to be brought into compliance and a consent decree with the Department of Justice also necessitated documentation of the accessibility of its Hilton branded facilities. John Q Hammons turned to The McIntosh Group to audit these hotels for ADA compliance.
SOLUTION: Using our iPad app and online web tool, we surveyed hotels in Kentucky South Carolina, Texas, New Mexico and California and then uploaded all findings, with barrier removal plans, into a database that John Q. Hammons presented to its architects. In addition to gathering data for the architects, the reports provided the documentation, including photos, needed by the Department of Justice.
