Accessibility Alert: ICC Updates Standard

The International Code Council (ICC) has released an update to the 2009 ICC A117.1 Accessible and Usable Buildings and Facilities standard that provides greater accessibility to buildings for persons with physical disabilities and incorporates new elements of building design. The standard helps achieve uniformity in the technical design criteria in building codes that allow a person with a physical disability — such as the inability to walk, blindness, or deafness — to independently get to, enter and use a facility. The standard is intended for adoption by government agencies and organizations. Click here for more information.
