About

Overview

With a single resource, you can learn to translate key state and federal accessibility requirements into clear, easy-to-understand and easy-to-apply explanations. It's all contained in CODE SOURCE ACCESSIBILITY: CODES, STANDARDS, AND GUIDELINES, the groundbreaking resource that explores the accessibility requirements that apply to commercial, residential, and existing buildings. The book focuses on four major industry publications: the International Building Code® (IBC®) and its accessibility reference standard A117.1 – 2003, the Revised Americans with Disabilities Act/Architectural Barriers Act Accessibility Guidelines (ADAAG 2004), and the Federal Fair Housing Act's Accessibility Guidelines (FH Act). Working in agreement with one another, the standards set forth by these documents serve as the guiding principles for the construction of code-compliant buildings, and CODE SOURCE ACCESSIBILITY: CODES, STANDARDS, AND GUIDELINES is the perfect collection of their most critical provisions. Not intended to replace the full state and federal accessibility requirements, this concise yet thorough resource will help readers to learn and quickly reference basic code-compliant accessibility standards for people with disabilities. It will also help readers to avoid the future pitfalls of not adhering to the standards, such as costly litigation and retrofitting, making it a tool they won't want to be without.
