Stepping Thru Accessible Public Multi-Family Residential Facilities

An overview of publicly supported multi-family residential facilities and the differing requirements of regulations and codes. We will look at the various components found within dwelling units and sleeping accommodations for social service center establishments including kitchens and bathrooms. Multi-family residential is one of the more complex building types. Depending on when the facility was initially built and where the funds come from, you can have a multitude of different regulations for one project such as the ADA Standards, the FHA, UFAS, and California Building Codes both 11A and 11B. We will also touch upon alterations and transition plans and how this affects different types of multi-family housing projects.
