Ensuring Accessibility


“The project will revitalize this critical piece of our downtown… and make significant safety, mobility and accessibility improvements so all people can enjoy the 16th Street Mall for many decades to come.”

- Mayor Michael B. Hancock


In alignment with Mayor Michael B. Hancock’s vision to revitalize downtown Denver, the city embarked on a transformative initiative to enhance the iconic 16th Street Mall. Charles Taylor has been selected to play a pivotal role in ensuring mobility and accessibility compliance throughout the revitalization project. Charles Taylor is committed to inclusivity and accessibility, reflecting a dedication to ADA compliance and a broader mission to enhance accessibility and foster a more equitable urban environment.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that 12 % of U.S. adults face mobility disabilities, underscoring the magnitude of the accessibility challenge. The project’s goal is to bolster safety and infrastructure, enhance overall user experience, and establish an inclusive environment where everyone can partake in the mall’s offerings. Led by Elizabeth Ruggles, Senior ADA & Accessibility Consultant, the Engineering Technical Services Team will collaborate closely with developers to ensure compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Drawing on their extensive experience and expertise, they conduct peer reviews of product submittals and identify non-conformances during construction, focusing on accessibility compliance.
