Robert J. Ross, P.E. Sr. Engineer (Ross Engineering)
Approach Architects requested Ross Engineering (“RE’) to design the paving, sidewalk and grading to carry out ada improvements for the parking lots of seven Bank of America located throughout Broward County. Ross Engineering was asked to design the handicap parking and sidewalk ramps in conformance to ADA improvements Standards. Bank of America’s commercial projects extend throughout the US.
Ross Engineering developed new technological solutions for the ada improvments. During the ada improvements engineering design process the responsibilities of the our engineer’s include defining problems, conducting and narrowing research, analyzing criteria, finding and analyzing solutions, and making decisions. Much of our time is spent on researching, locating, applying, and transferring information. Indeed, research suggests we spend 56 percent of our time engaged in various information behaviors, including 14 percent actively searching for information.
Our ADA improvements engineers must weigh different design choices on their merits and choose the solution that best matches the requirements. Their crucial and unique task is to find, understand, and interpret the constraints on a design to produce a successful result.
