The Americans with Disability Act (ADA) has been a standard in construction since 1990. In the 25 years since its enactment, there have been numerous regulatory amendments and a plethora of civil claims concerning its application. Lessons have been learned and in this seminar we will review best practices by design professionals and building owners on how to minimize liability exposure to this civil rights law.
We will explore and discuss:
Legal requirements for accessibility
Strategies for minimizing exposure to legal liability
Best practices to avoid problems caused by construction tolerance issues
Accessibility resources including measuring equipment and the role of Certified Access Specialists
