Webday Wednesday - An Investigation of the Costs of Accessibility – Building to RHFAC Gold

 Registration is closed for this event
For the month of April, the RAIC is pleased to present a weekly series on the subject of Universal Design.

An Investigation of the Costs of Accessibility – Building to RHFAC Gold
Date: April 29, 2020
Presenter: Darryl Condon 

SESSION:

Designing buildings to be widely inclusive is a fundamental responsibility of all involved in the process, however, understanding what it takes to go beyond the minimum code requirements can be challenging. This session will help accessibility professionals dispel potential client concerns by sharing the results of a research project that analyzed the added construction costs relation to accessibility certification for new buildings.

LEARNING OUTCOMES:
At the completion of this session, the participant/learner will be able to:

  • Analyze a building's access for all users including those with hearing, vision, and/or mobility challenges, and understand where improvements can be made.
  • Develop a strong understanding of Universal Design and how it is applied.
  • Understand the economic and societal importance of ensuring that the built environment is accessible for all.

Continuing education learning hours: 1 credit
