The Herrington Group: Helping Access Lead to Opportunity  

At The Herrington Group, our work is about more than grab bars and automatic doors; it's about being agents of social change. All of our accessibility products and services are strengthened by our personal experience with disability - this is not just a business, but a passion for us.

We are Agents of Change…in Perspective

We know your focus as a business matters; we have the unique experience of being on both sides of the coin: as individuals personally affected by barriers and as an organization obligated to meet compliance expectations of the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA). As such, we help clients to create a balanced, practical approach to compliance.

We are Agents of Change…in Focus

We believe people with disabilities are simply clients and customers who want to work with you. With our unique focus we ask: "How can we help more people get to your and your services?"

We are Agents of Change in…Attitude

We believe there is a world of possibility that opens to you when your attitude is focused on inclusion.

At its heart all accessibility work is about a shift away from the “us vs. them mentality”. We empower our clients to not just change their attitudes, but to begin to build communities of inclusion out of their companies.

The Herrington Group is here to help you make a change. How can we be Agents of Change for you?

Auditing Services

The Herrington Group is best known for its accessibility auditing services, having managed many large-scale projects across the province. We have extensive experience in planning, executing and reporting accessibility audits of a variety of facilities and spaces.

Accessibility audits of The Herrington Group reflect a “cross-disability” approach taking into account the needs of individuals with mobility, visual, hearing and cognitive disabilities. Our auditing tool is based on the most widely used and recognized accessibility design standards available.

We provide more than an audit report; we provide a retrofit planning tool. Using our own auditing database we can evaluate your facilities and determine how best to modify them in order to create universal accessibility for all users. Our database allows us to create a customized audit report which reflects excellence in the current design, areas for improvement and recommendations about how to create an accessible space.

The database reporting options can be further customized to meet specific client needs and enquiries. The database provides the following standard reporting options:

Option Benefit
Full accessibility report Can generate recommendations by facility and priority level
Costing Estimates by facility and priority level Enables prioritization of projects and expenditure projections
Areas that are compliant Assists in future design
Recommendations by frequency Assists with planning and purchasing across the organization
