ADA and Lodging Webinar Series

Speaker: Nancy Horton, Information Specialist, Mid-Atlantic ADA Center

The 2010 Standards for Accessible Design define requirements for accessible buildings and facilities, and include many specific provisions for hotels. Although ADA requirements have been in effect for several years, the new 2010 Standards include some significant changes, and there is a great deal to know to fully understand these requirements. This session will provide an overview of the new requirements that are important for the lodging industry, including requirements for swimming pools and other recreational facilities. Accessibility survey tools and other resources will be shared. There will be ample time for questions and answers. This session will be submitted for AIA credit.
