Got Codes? Practical FHA-ADA-Accessibility Code Compliance

This is the first session in the Got Codes? series.

Apartment construction is booming. The various standards for accessibility compliance are necessary for design professionals to understand in detail, but can be somewhat complicated and confusing. This seminar focuses on clarifying application of the various standards (FHA, ADA, UFAS, IBC / ANSI) to Multi-Unit Housing compliance. It includes details of the “Dirty Dozen” most common issues in multi-unit housing accessibility compliance. Endelman & Associates (E&A) will address how to solve some of the most common issues in design and in the field, using photos and on the fly sketches. The application of 2010 ADA Standards is limited in multi-unit housing. We will discuss some scoping areas that may impact your projects. E&A will help provide you a good risk management perspective, and ways to minimize risk.

Registration Closes: Monday, May 21, 2018.
