Stepping Thru
The Existing Building – Access Within & Without

WEBINAR | 9:00am-3:15pm—CE TBD

The nature of building and construction has changed with a higher proportion of renovation and re-use. Under the ADA Standards, there are differing requirements for new construction versus alteration. Since these are federal laws local public agencies offer only limited direction. This webinar will review criteria for existing facilities in regard to scoping to acquire a better sense of the implications of the law and how it applies as well as cover a range of concepts such as Program Accessibility vs Barrier Removal, Proportional Spending, Safe Harbor, and Path of Travel obligations.


  • Understand differences between Public Facilities and Places of Public Accommodation
  • Review the distinctions between Program Accessibility vs Barrier Removal and their impact
  • Learn about Proportional Spending and Disproportionality with its application to Path of Travel requirements
  • Overview of Safe Harbor and when it can or can not be applied to existing elements
