The ADA and Residential Facilities
Abadi Accessibility serves the building community as an accessibility specialist and offers plan reviews, building inspections, site assessments, training and education to their clients.
In the 2010 ADA/ABA Standards for Accessible Design, the U.S. Access Board added requirements for residential facilities. These requirements are not for multi-family housing projects or for single family housing, but housing required to be accessible by the ADA and ABA. This course will explain the difference between the ADA and FHA requirements and teach about the technical requirements for each Standard. And will make it more clear how the ADA and the other accessibility standards make residential facilities more accessible.
- Discuss how the history of the residential standards in the ADA came about
- Identify the difference between ADA Residential requirements and Fair Housing Act
