Today’s mixed-use buildings require the application of varying codes, particularly with respect to accessibility requirements. While these projects are not, by definition, solely residential, they are often “primarily” so. This course compares Fair Housing regulations with the stricter requirements of the FBC - Accessibility with an eye towards when one applies over the other and when both apply.
We will compare the differences between useable and accessible elements as defined by Fair Housingand compare those with the more exacting requirements of the Florida Building Code and the ADA, then discuss the application of each set of requirements. Based on the requirements of the various safeharbors allowed by the FHAA, we will discuss requirement for common and public use areas and then focus on the more common issues noted by the presenter through his broad experience as an accessibility expert.
The focus of the course is to highlight little noticed elements which are not as well known to practitioners as well as those where non-compliances are commonly found during field inspections. We will then explain in detail what the requirements are. This advanced course will look beyond code requirements and dive into the weeds of compliance, providing specific, re-useable guidance for architects.
This course is intended to help participants clearly understand the nuances of compliance with the requirements of the Fair Housing Act Amendments and the Florida Building Code – Accessibility and the common reasons for non-compliance with those requirements. Upon completion of the course, participants will understand the impact of day-to-day construction practices that affect compliance and be able to develop techniques for addressing those concerns through clearer and more detailed documentation and field observation.
