Our June 2015 Workshop: Stepping Thru Multi-Family Housing - An Overview of ADA Standards
Multi-family housing is one of the more complex building types.
Depending on when the facility was built and where the funds come from and who oversees the project, you can have a multitude of different regulations. In an overview and a scoping sense we will review the ADA Standards, the FHA, UFAS, and California Building Codes both 11A and 11B and compare the requirements for each. We will also touch upon alterations and transition plans and how this affects different types of multi-family housing projects.
•Understand overall jurisdictions that have requirements for multi-family housing projects
•Review differences in the scoping between the different agencies
•Learn about some of the different dwelling unit requirements dependent upon the regulations
•Overview approaches for new construction versus existing as well as alterations
•Updates on current regulations and requirements
