It is a common misconception that buildings which predate the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) are “grandfathered” from compliance; however it is important to understand that there are no blanket exemptions. This session will highlight requirements under Title III of the ADA that apply when altering existing and historic commercial projects such as restaurants, museums, libraries, retail shops, etc. Obligations to remove barriers to accessibility will be addressed, including steps to entrances, inaccessible restrooms, and lack of access to goods and services.
