Presented by the Mid-Atlantic ADA Center
The accessibility of buildings and facilities has become one of the most litigated issues under the ADA. This session reviewed typical design and construction gaffes to create awareness, and provided an opportunity for participants to discuss concerns in their own projects.
Speaker: Dom Marinelli has been with United Spinal Association (Eastern Paralyzed Veterans Association) since 1988 and is the VP of the Accessibility-Services Department. He is a voting member on the American National Standards for Accessible and Usable Buildings & Facilities (A117.1) Committee and has contributed to the accessibility requirements within the International Building Code (IBC), the International Existing Building Code (IEBC), the Fair Housing Act Accessibility Guidelines, and the 1991 and 2010 ADA Standards.
