Program:

The program will review the most common items that are missed in design and construction resulting in violations of accessibility requirements from the federal agency that develops and enforces it. Participants will develop an understanding of what federal inspectors and attorneys will be focusing on in their inspections of residential (Fair Housing Act Accessibility Guidelines) and Commercial (2010 ADA Standards), as well as develop an understanding of what changes can be anticipated in state and federal accessibility requirements and when these changes will go into effect.

 

Learning Objectives:

  1. Upon completion of this program, participants will identify and develop an understanding of what serial plaintiffs are looking for in their drive-by inspections of commercial occupancy.
  2. Participants will determine the most common items that are missed in design and construction resulting in violations of accessibility requirements.
  3. Participants will understand the differences of the new North Carolina Building Code and its impact on Commercial Occupancies.
  4. Participants will discover how the Accessibility Requirements of Federal 2010 ADA Standards; The North Carolina Building code and its Accessibility Standard A117.1 2009 apply to their  Commercial projects.
