Wheelchair ramp design for person in Brandom Iowa


Requested Project

Design Ramp so that Carpenters Union can construct on property owners land.  Ramp will be 43 inches from the ground at the front door.  At 1 foot per inch of drop, ramp will need to be 43 feet long.  It will therefore need to have platform so that the ramp can return towards the house adjacent to the original 22 foot long ramp.  The client requests a deck at 18 inches above the driveway so that he can put a board between the ramp and his van so that he can move directly into his vehicle.  The ground also drops at approx 3/4 inch per length of run which needs to be taken into account.
