U.S. Access Board Webinar: Using the ADA and ABA Standards:
Chapter 1 (January 9)

U.S. Access Board, ADA and ABA Standards, webinar series by the ADA National Network 

Starting in the new year, the U.S. Access Board will devote its monthly webinar series to a chapter-by-chapter review of the ADA Standards.

These standards govern the construction and alteration of a wide range of facilities covered by the ADA. The sessions will also cover similar standards that apply under the Architectural Barriers Act (ABA) to facilities that are federally funded. Presenters will focus on common sources of confusion in the ADA and ABA Standards and frequently asked questions.

U.S. Access Board Webinar: Scoping Requirements in the ADA and ABA Standards for Alterations and Additions - Chapter 2 (March 5)

laptop with Access Board sealDetermining what is required to be accessible when a facility is altered or expanded can be a challenge under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) or the Architectural Barriers Act (ABA). The next webinar in the U.S. Access Board's free monthly series will take place March 5 from 2:30 – 4:00 (ET) and will cover how to apply the ADA and ABA Standards to planned alterations and additions. Presenters will clarify common sources of confusion, including what type of work constitutes an "alteration," how the scope of work determines application, the provisions for primary function areas and accessible paths of travel, historic facilities, and technical infeasibility.

U.S. Access Board Webinar: New Construction Scoping Requirements in ADA and ABA Standards - Chapter 2 (February 6)

The next webinar in the U.S. Access Board's free monthly series will take place February 6 from 2:30 – 4:00 (ET) and will cover "scoping" provisions in the ADA and ABA Standards. These requirements specify which (or how many) elements, spaces, and rooms must comply in newly built and altered facilities. They address the required number of accessible routes, parking spaces, entrances, restrooms, signs, and many other building elements and spaces. Scoping provisions also exempt certain structures and spaces. This session will review scoping requirements and exceptions in Chapter 2 of the standards that apply in new construction. Presenters will clarify common sources of confusion, employee work areas, entrances, vertical access in multi-story buildings, toilet and bathing facilities, and other subjects of frequently asked questions.
