From Plans to Practice: Best Practices in Accessible Design and Construction

Course Description: This training focuses on two critical areas of project development, design and construction. Cases involving complaints against architects for failing to design multifamily housing to incorporate access for people with disabilities are on the rise and are expected to continue. This training will highlight common oversights architects make when incorporating accessibility into multi-family plan development, followed by typical errors made in the field during construction. It will offer practical examples of simple solutions which, when incorporated into plan development and construction, will help produce projects which are truly accessible. The common mistakes highlighted in the presentation are those which have been the subject of several complaints against architects and developers which have, in some cases, resulted in litigation. Learn how to avoid these mistakes before they occur!

    Learn what triggers the accessible design and construction requirements of all federal laws
