Decoded | Multifamily Accessibility

This is the fourth session in the 2021 Decoded series presented by AIA Seattle’s Code Committee.

Multifamily residential accessibility compliance is far more complicated than it first appears. With the overlapping of federal laws and building code, it can become confusing very quickly.  This session will inform and educate multifamily residential  architects, builders, and developers on the key differences in federal laws and building code as well as the how, why, where, and when to applying them.  This course will specifically cover ADA, FHA, IBC Chapter 11, and ICC A117.1 as they apply to privately financed  R2 occupancies.

Join us online September 21 and  September 22, 2021 (12-2pm each day) for Decoded | Multifamily Accessibility. Register below and look for information regarding online event access in your confirmation email and subsequent email communications.
