The complexity of the various California Building Codes, Title 24, Americans with Disabilities Act, Fair Housing Act and HCD regulations can be staggering. The research and coordination necessary to advise consumers, employers, business owners, architects, municipalities and the legal community has become a highly specialized task.
My firm, Kim R. Blackseth, Interests has been providing these skills for 21 years. We have nationwide experience and a reputation for timely, accurate work. I bring 18 years of varied corporate, commercial real estate, architectural and building experience to this field. I was a Vice President of Corporate Real Estate with Bank of America for five years. Previous to that, I was with Bechtel Corporation in San Francisco. During the two years prior to the establishment of Kim R. Blackseth, Interests, I was with Gensler & Associates, the nation’s largest interior architect, developing their ADA and California Title 24 capabilities.
