A Basic Guide to Fair Housing Accessibility: Everything Architects and Builders Need to Know About the Fair Housing Act Accessibility Guidelines
Written by SWA Senior VP Peter Stratton, A Basic Guide to Fair Housing Accessibility takes the guesswork out of Fair Housing Act Accessibility Guidelines conformance.
Inspired by Stratton’s HUD-sponsored review of nearly 400 built projects, this compact yet comprehensive guide reviews the guidelines for conformance with the seven basic design and construction requirements of the Fair Housing Amendments Act, from accessible building entrances to usable kitchens, and points out common conformance errors made by architects, builders, and developers.
This practical, easy-to-follow handbook demystifies accessibility guidelines and reduces the risk of litigation, explains which buildings and units are covered by the law, and provides a compliance checklist for multifamily housing design and construction.
Featuring only the facts and technical guidance needed to help ensure conformance with federal guidelines, A Basic Guide to Fair Housing Accessibility is an indispensable resource for architects, builders, contractors, site engineers, and developers who need to know that their work is in conformance.
