Stepping Thru Vignette Series: Accessibility – A Photographic Look at Recurrent Non-Complying Elements

DESCRIPTION
ADA and other accessibility regulations have been around for well over 25 years, yet we still see items of noncompli-ance 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 and how to better incorporate pertinent information into construction documents and specifications.

SUMMARY
This presentation will look at many common items in non-compliance often found in new construction and alterations thru a visual synthesis of photos with pertinent regulation call-outs of numerous existing installations

• Identify typical non-complying items before 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
