Using the ADA and ABA Standards: Chapter 1: Application and Administration
The ADA Standards apply nationwide to many types of facilities in the private sector and the state and local government sectors. Facilities funded by the federal government are subject to similar standards issued under the Architectural Barriers Act (ABA). This session kicks off a year-long, chapter-by-chapter review of these standards with a focus on those sections where questions or confusion often arise. Presenters will cover how the ADA and ABA Standards apply in new construction, alterations, and additions, dimensions for adults and children, equivalent facilitation and modifications or waivers, construction tolerances and other conventions, referenced standards, and definitions.
