This 5-hour presentation will complete all California required ADA/Accessibility hours for architects’ 2013 licensure renewal.

This course will cover the application of common ADA requirements for existing Title III “Public Accommodation” facilities.  The instructor will cover the most commonly litigated access issues in California.  The course is designed for Architects, Engineers, building professionals, CASp’s and Code officials who are conducting accessibility site evaluations, preparing designs, performing plan reviews and construction field verification at existing buildings.

The goal of this program is to highlight and feature those areas common to most buildings, facilities and sites.  In addition, the training will also touch on common errors, omissions and assumptions that lead to confusion, redesign, project delays, change orders and cost overruns. We will discuss how to avoid errors and omissions, substandard construction and the exposure to complaints and legal action that can arise from non-compliance and deficiencies in accessibility.

The presenter will emphasize the specific technical provisions of the new 2010 ADA Standards and point out areas where it differs from the old guidelines. We will also be introduced to the anticipated changes in the 2013 California Building Code.

This course will focus on California accessibility and Federal ADA requirements pertaining to existing buildings. The material is presented in three parts, combining an overview of up-to-date regulatory requirements with hands-on activities. The presentation will follow an outline similar to the following, with the addition of a section on Universal Design and Multi-Family Housing:

Part I: General Code Framework for Working with Existing Buildings

Understanding and properly applying California code and Federal standards as they relate to existing buildings

Important definitions relevant to existing building accessibility

Triggering elements: Additions, alterations, repairs, change of use and occupancy

Accessibility Compliance Strategies – practical applications

Part II: Common Accessibility Requirements That Arise in Existing Buildings

Overview and application of 2010 CBC and the 2010 ADA technical requirements pertaining to parking, exterior paths of travel, interior paths of travel, stairs, elevators, restrooms, drinking fountains and signage

Tools and effective techniques in properly applying state and federal design standards

Part III: Practicum and Discussion

Identifying and solving common practice problems stemming from deficiencies in access compliance

Reasonability and the imperfect world

Navigating the permit process efficiently – avoiding common pitfalls

Strategies and practical methods to consider in practice

Standard of Care, QA/QC and verification
