SPECIAL ONE-TIME 5 HOUR SPRING SEMINAR / LIVE WEBINAR

Summary

The nature of building and construction has changed with a higher proportion of renovation and re-use. Under the ADA Standards, there are differing requirements for new construction versus alteration. Since these are federal laws local public agencies offer only limited direction. This seminar will review criteria for existing facilities in regard to scoping to acquire a better sense of the implications of the law and how it applies as well as cover a range of concepts such as Program Accessibility vs Barrier Removal, Proportional Spending, Safe Harbor, and Path of Travel obligations.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand differences between Public Facilities and Places of Public Accommodation
  • Review the distinctions between Program Accessibility vs Barrier Removal and their impact
  • Learn about Proportional Spending and Disproportionality with its application to Path of Travel requirements
  • Overview of Safe Harbor and when it can or can not be applied to existing elements

Testimonials

“Thank you. I sat in during the seminar and it was fantastic. The sound was clear and you re-asked the questions so the webinar folks understood. The back and forth with the audience was lively but to the point. I just wanted to send a note and thank you again – your draw is huge, expertise on point, and I can’t thank you enough.”

– Eric Sifuentes, CASp, Nacht & Lewis

“Janis is our go-to person whenever issues requiring interpretation of CBC/ADA arise. She is knowledgable, thorough and being an architect herself helps her better understand the challenges we face implementing the ever more detailed accessibility requirements.”

–Ron Bernhardt, AIA Retail Design Collaborative


I’ve found that the seminars and webinars that Stepping Thru Accessibility offers are the most comprehensive and of the highest quality available. I have always gained very useful and practical information on a wide range of accessibility topics with Janis’s seminars/webinars; highly recommended for anyone with an interest in accessibility.
