This seminar is part of CASI 2nd Annual Accessibility Codes & Standards Summit, October 11-12, 2018
Please join us for a special two-day event designed for expert-level CASp and building officials, architects and inspectors, to learn Accessibility Codes and Standards. Take advantage of this rare opportunity to obtain information directly from National Level (ADA specific) and California (CBC-specific) industry experts.
ADA and other accessibility regulations have been around for well over 25 years, yet we still see items of non-compliance even in new construction. Is this due to a lack of knowledge, or incomplete drawings and specifications, or sloppy construction, or is it that the topic has become so complex that it is difficult to synthesize all of the relevant information? And many of the items are indeed extremely technical yet the solutions need to be incorporated at the early non-technical design stages. This presentation will look at many common items in non-compliance often found in new construction and alterations. Learn thru a visual synthesis of photos with pertinent regulation call-outs of numerous existing installations. We will discuss what went wrong, was missing, or misunderstood, in order to recognize Access issues to be on the look-out for whether in drawings or out in the field.

- Identify typical non-complying items before and after they get built
- Recognize what needs to be addressed early for compliant Access later
- Distinguish those elements that require more attention during design and construction for compliant installation
- Discuss what is required for successful Access implementation
