4F Alterations & Additions to Existing Facilities
A big challenge when undertaking alterations and additions to existing facilities is determining how and to what extent the ADA Standards apply to the project. Knowing where the boundaries are when applying the ADA Standards to alterations and additions has a myriad of implications on the scope of the project, timetables, and budgets. This program addresses what type of work constitutes an “alteration,” how the scope of work determines application, provisions for primary function areas and determining “disproportionality,” historic facilities, technical infeasibility and other topics. This course is an expanded offering from the ADA Standards Basics course, which will not cover alterations in any depth.
