Using the ADA and ABA Standards Series: Chapter 2: Scoping - Alterations


Thursday, March 5, 2020
2:30 P.M. to 4:00 P.M. EST


Cost: Free


Where: Online/Web-based


Sponsored By:

Great Lakes ADA Center and U.S. Access Board

Description:

Determining what is required to be accessible when a facility is altered or expanded can be a challenge. This session will review how Chapter 2 of the ADA and ABA Accessibility Standards apply 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.

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. Over the course of the year, this review will also cover:

  • March 5 – Chapter 2: Scoping - Alterations
  • April 2 – Chapter 3: Building Blocks
  • May 7 – Chapter 4: Accessible Routes
  • June 4 – Chapter 5: General Site and Building Elements
  • July 2 – Chapter 6: Plumbing Elements and Facilities
  • August 6 – Chapter 7: Communication Elements and Features
  • September 3 – Chapter 8: Special Rooms, Spaces, and Elements (Part 1)
  • October 1 – Chapter 8: Special Rooms, Spaces, and Elements (Part 2)
