Overview

With its emphasis on physical accessibility, the Americans with Disabilities Act Accessibility Guidelines (ADAAG) have far-reaching implications for the design or renovation of virtually all public-use buildings and sites in the United States. Yet there has been little guidance on how to design and review the drawings and specifications of an existing or proposed facility to assess its ADAAG compliance. This invaluable reference provides such guidance at last for architects, interior designers, landscape architects, engineers, builders, planners, facilities managers, specification writers, construction code officials, teachers, and students, as well as individuals concerned with access issues. The authors present the ADAAG in an easily understandable format grouping ADAAG criteria into detailed checklists for specific interior and exterior spaces such as offices, classrooms, retail shops, restaurants, restrooms, and parking garages. This sensible approach makes the review process of any room, building, or site highly manageable. For additional convenience, the presentation parallels the design process from schematic design through construction documents, including detail, schedule, and specification review. Complete with review forms, checklists, graphics, and other information necessary to ensure ADAAG compliance, this thorough guide will prove invaluable to everyone involved with the design or retrofit of accessible buildings and sites.
