HOT ISSUES

The 2010 Standards for Accessible Design, effective 3/15/12, have some new scoping provisions that can impact your multiunit housing projects.

Projects with HUD Section 504 or other public funding require 5% of units be accessible with mobility features.  These are generally more stringent than "Code Type A" units.  Additionally, 2% of units need to have Communiction Features.  Funding programs that trigger this are not well documented or defined - be conservative.

Among the significant new Regulations is "Housing at a Place of Education" for housing operated by or for the benefit of educational institutions.  This can have a large design impact, as it is much more stringent and requires greater quantities of accessible units than the typical IBC / ANSI A117.1 Type A units.

There are many implications of these changes that E&A can assist you with.

Please Contact us for more information on how the 2010 ADA Standards will affect your public accommodation and public sector projects and facilities.
