In 1961 ANSI issued Standard A117.1. Eventually the standard was rewritten so that it could be adopted by a building code to provide access requirements for the code’s jurisdiction. The Americans with Disabilities Act was signed into law July 26, 1990. It was revised 20 years later, with the 2010 version. The ADA is over 30 and A117.1 is 60 years old. However, Accessible design is still misunderstood, creating design and construction challenges. This presentation takes a look at some of the differences between ADA and ANSI A117.1. Addressing the intent of accessibility and providing solutions when they are different.
- Understating what is ANSI and ADA
- Exploring the significant changes to ANSI
- Comparing the differences in standards between ANSI and ADA
- Applying the Accessibility Standards to Design and Construction
Learning Units will be provided: Yes (AIA LU/HSW)
