Determining what’s required to be accessible under the MAAB Regulations and the ADA Standards when altering or expanding a facility can be a challenge. In this session, you will learn how and to what extent requirements in the MAAB Regulations and the ADA Standards apply to planned alterations and additions. Presenters will cover what type of work constitutes an “alteration,” how the scope of work or cost of the project determines application, when an altered building needs to be brought up to new construction standards, provisions and definitions for “primary function areas,” accessible paths of travel, historic facilities, technical infeasibility and variances.
