Best Practices for Accessibility Compliance

Oct 23, 2014

This Resource Page of the Whole Buildings Design Guide describes overall best practices to achieve compliance with accessibility regulations through the entire project cycle, including concept design through construction completion. Employing these best practices will help enhance compliance with applicable federal laws, including the Architectural Barriers Act (ABA) of 1968, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, as amended (ADA), or the Fair Housing Amendments Act of 1988 (FHA). It highlights tools that help make it easier for designers, developers, and contractors to assess facilities for accessibility compliance and links to relevant codes, standards, and guidelines,
