Have you scheduled alterations, renovations, tenant improvements or new construction in your building in the coming months? Did you know that your plans could be impacted by the recently revised Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) regulations -- the first major update to the ADA since the regulations were first published in 1991? After March 15, 2012, new construction and alterations will be required to comply with the new ADA Standards adopted by the U.S. Department of Justice in 2010. These new regulations are going to affect many areas of construction/renovation including front and side reach ranges, employee work spaces, restrooms, parking garages, fitness centers, and more. Find out what you need to know and how you should prepare, to ensure you're ADA compliant.
