Open to all. Preregistration required.
As buildings & facilities become more complex – there is an even greater need to include accessibility features in our designs. The requirements of ANSI A117.1 (2009), Standard for Accessible and Usable Buildings and Facilities are now mandated by law throughout the US and must be addressed from preliminary design down to the final detailing of all commercial, multi-family and institutional projects.
The new emphasis in the design community in public health is exhibited by a strong need to make buildings accessible. This is a body of knowledge that has become a mandatory prerequisite for your design projects.
Attendees will learn how to incorporate accessible features during various project design stages to produce truly sustainable projects and fully code-compliant buildings & facilities and will take home a greater appreciation of the many wrinkles that exist and how to deal with them.
