Chris was instrumental in assisting me with compliance of ADA regulations for my brewery taproom during the build out phase.  As these regulations are often updated, it was great to have Chris's resources and knowledge to assist me with planning the correct parking signage, correct lift capabilities, bathroom stall size, and any other possible hurdles or just plain small details of table height and a section of bar lowered so my taproom is accessible to anyone and everyone.
