In 1997, John Torkelson founded theACCESSpartnership, l.p. to provide accessibility consulting to building owners, facility managers and architects. His background in the architecture field, and desire to assist architects, developers and owners through the often confusing maze of accessibility standards and codes led him to found a company that focuses on providing clear, consistent information in a timely manner.
