Glenn Dea has been employed in the architecture and construction industry since 1988. He is a licensed California architect and ICC-certified accessibility inspector/plans examiner. Since 2001, Glenn’s practice has focused on compliance with federal and state accessibility standards, Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) transition plan services, and accessible design covering buildings, sites, and pedestrian facilities in public rights-of-way. This has encompassed accessibility surveys, plan reviews, and code analyses for numerous corporate, education, and governmental clients. Glenn was a consultant access compliance plan reviewer to California’s Division of the State Architect (DSA) – Los Angeles Basin Region Office (2004-2011), and he was one of California’s first certified access specialists (CASp #023), based on experience and testing criteria administered by the DSA (2008). Since 2014, he has been an alternate delegate to the ICC/ANSI Committee on Accessible and Usable Buildings and Facilities, contributing to creation of the 2017 edition of the ICC A117.1 Accessibility Standard.
