Cascade Building Inc. provides an in-person TURNKEY design, configuration and installation service for NEW CONSTRUCTION AND RENNOVATION involving outdoor [pedestal mounted] mailboxes and indoor [wall mounted] central mail delivery systems.
We make sure your products AND INSTALLATION will meet all safety and security USPS and American with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliance. The USPS and ADA regulations make compliance today with USPS and ADA specifications more important than ever. If not done correctly and exactly you may expose your building to lawsuits by ADA abusive schemes or theft of mail and storage box contents.
In today’s regulatory environment the last thing an apartment or commercial building owner needs is an ADA violation lawsuit or a problem with the ever-changing standards of the United States Postal Services [USPS]. It is estimated that over the next ten years that 15 million [15M] single mailboxes will be decommissioned and no longer serviced by the USPS. This is because the USPS continually seeks to stem the losses and remain a viable delivery system for goods and services in the face of electronic, and overnight [UPS/FedEx] competitors. The table below shows that no other contractor handles all the design, configuration and compliance complexity that is unavoidable with new construction or renovation projects involving centralized mailbox delivery systems.
