Accessibility Compliance: “Pro Tips” from the DCAMM Statewide Accessibility Initiative

Join Emmanuel Andrade, co-chair of the Access Committee and Project Manager at DCAMM’s Statewide Accessibility Initiative, for a presentation on critical but often misunderstood issues in accessibility compliance for public projects. During this 60-minute session, Emmanuel will:

  • Clarify some of the most common myths about accessibility compliance
  • Discuss elements that are often overlooked during design and construction
  • Bring forward code requirements that are "hidden" in 521 CMR, including the definition of building
  • Compare parallel requirements of 521 CMR and the ADA to help understand which are more stringent, and therefore binding
  • Provide tips on how to apply for a successful variance with the MAAB

The Access Committee will also be announcing and presenting a new outreach initiative at the January meeting.

Please invite your colleagues and consultants! Lunch will be provided, but please RSVP in advance.

For those who qualify, 1.5 LUs are available
