Talk About It

There are no comments yet, be the first!

When designing buildings in Texas, The American Disabilities Act/Texas Accessibility Standard and the building codes based on the International Building Code must be consulted.  It becomes unclear for design professionals how to determine who is responsible for each part of the project, particularly as it pertains to accessibility guidelines.  What do you do?  Come hear from a panel of experts about residential and commercial projects, which authority has jurisdiction, and which standard presides over the project.

Lunch will be provided.
