The Sheraton Centre Hotel is renovating in Toronto. Will this be ACCESSIBLE?

Which consulting firm will Sheraton Centre use to ensure all of the Ontario Build Code Barrier Free Design elements are in place. Jan 1st 2015 (45 days from today) is the deadline for commencement of use of the OBC ABES design + the IASR (AODA) mandatory requirements for public space accessible design and outdoor public space mandatory design.

Interior Designers and Architects are NOT experts in accessible design (although many a firm states they are). This is one of the reasons Vendors such as ID and Architectural firms themselves must prove compliance with the AODA for Ontario’s requirements before being selected by Hotel Procurement teams.
