Location: St. Luke’s United Methodist Church

This highly advanced one-day curriculum examines the architectural requirements for accessibility to new/altered construction and existing buildings under the Americans with Disabilities Act.  We explore all 10 chapters of the 2010 DOJ Standards for Accessible Design in depth, with recent interpretations and clarifications from the US Access Board, the Dept. of Justice and others.


  • ADA 2010 Standards- key application issues and definitions of Chapter 1- 2
  • Overview of the purpose and key topics of the technical chapters (3 thru 10)
  • Significant architectural changes approved by the International Code Council (ICC) in the 2018 ANSI A117 plus changes are not harmonized with the 2010 DOJ Standards. 
  • In-depth analysis of design principles using case study- we will examine a remodel and additions to a $13 million construction project.
