Ryan Vucina has considerable experience in the California real estate development industry. As Chief Operations Manager of Vucina Construction, Ryan Vucina is familiar with the processes surrounding compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
Adherence to the ADA in California is strong, and the cost of litigation is high. Businesses found in violation of the ADA or the California Building Code may be fined a minimum of $4,000, in addition to paying the plaintiff’s attorney’s fees. Unfortunately, although the ADA was intended as a protection for persons who are disabled, in some instances, individuals have taken undue advantage of the system by filing unwarranted lawsuits.
In response, the California legislature created Certified Access Specialists (CASp). Business and property owners can request CASp inspections to determine if they are ADA-compliant. CASp inspections can protect against unfair lawsuits by making sure that facilities comply with state and federal guidelines. They also locate “readily achievable” corrections to code violations and provide sufficient time for alterations. Even though a building may not yet be up to code, the inspections establish the owner’s intent to make changes, in order that all customers may access a business.
The former Chief Operations Manager for Vucina Construction, Ryan Vucina has overseen the creation of luxury residential properties from start to completion. A former football player, Ryan Vucina engaged in the sport as an offensive tackle during high school and college.
Football provides various health benefits for players. Because the game includes frequent stop-and-go movements, coupled with a fair amount of running, it is a form of interval training, similar to high-intensity interval training, which involves quick bursts of movement for shorter periods of time, followed by longer, sustained movement.
The heart has to stop and adjust itself between fast and slow movements, causing it to burn calories quickly, as opposed to burning a constant amount of calories during a sport with consistent movement, such as running. With interval training, the body is challenged, since it is not working at a consistent level. This is one of the most effective ways of keeping body fat down while participating in aerobic exercise.
