CASI Discussion Group
The purpose of the Bimonthly Discussion Group is to connect CASI members to discuss various aspects of the California Building Code and federal accessibility standards.
Topic: Electric Vehicle Charging Stations (EVCS) Scoping
Date: Friday, May 20, 2022
Cost: FREE to CASI Members
Thank you for being interested in our recent code discussion group on May 20th, 2022. In this session, we will discuss Electric Vehicle Charging Stations (EVCS) Scoping.
We had such a rich conversation at the last group, we wanted to continue the EVCS discussion! This time, we will shift focus from technical requirements to scoping requirements for EVCS – where required, how many, and what kinds of EVCS. Discussion may also cover scoping choices that can impact technical requirements, exceptions in the technical requirements that may impact scoping choices, and applicability of technically infeasible exceptions.
For the upcoming CASI Discussion Group, come prepared with your code book, your thinking cap, and a willingness to engage.
Based on feedback from past participants, we will be extending the discussion group time to 1.5 hours.
You will be divided into a breakout group. Each breakout group will have 45 - 60 minutes to discuss a scenario, guided by a CASI Facilitator. Then, we will reconvene as a whole and a representative from each breakout group will have up to 5 minutes to present your gorup's findings and interpretations.
Want to learn more about EVCS BEFORE the discussion group? DSA Academy just launched a FREE On-Demand web course on California EVCS Accessibility! We encourage (but don't require) you to take time in advance to check out this 1-hour training.
