Credits: 1 AIA LU/HSW; 1 AIBD P-CE; 0.1 IACET CEU; 0.1 ICC CEUMay qualify for learning hours through most Canadian architectural associations

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was enacted in 1990, with major revisions enacted in 2010.  Since its release in September of 2010, the language outlined in the 2010 Standards for Accessible Design (SAD) has not changed.  However, as of March 2011, the ADA gained teeth – compliance is now required and enforceable on the federal level.

Since the ADA views visual impairments as a disability covered under the Act, there are specific guidelines pertaining to signage products. The two categories covered under interior signage are Wall Mounted, Ceiling Mounted or Projected. Within the Wall Mounted category, Identification of permanent room signs, Directional signs, and Informational signs are covered.  Within the Ceiling or Projected Mounted category, Directional and Information signs are covered.    

Learning Objectives:

  1. Obtain a better understanding of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
  2. Review ADA guidelines in terms of architectural signage and variances by state.
  3. Explain the litigation risks to building owners for non-compliance.
  4. Learn about the 2010 SAD Standards and enforcement process and identify the latest ADA signage material and manufacturing processes.
