Architects, interior designers, engineers, facility managers, and related building ADA Companion Guideprofessionals will find this to be a handy guide to the latest Americans with Disabilities Act Accessibility Guidelines (ADAAG), as published by the U.S. Access Board in the Federal Registry in 2004 and subsequently updated. As this book went to press in 2010, the U.S. Justice Department was expected to soon adopt the latest ADAAG, as covered in this book.
These guidelines have been revamped to offer more cohesive architectural guidance that improves the accessible design of buildings for individuals with special needs. Learn what the essentials of these revised guidelines are with this handy reference- what has changed, what hasn't, how to apply the guidelines, and what effect they will have on both the public and private sectors.

The ADA Companion Guide combines the complete ADAAG and ABA guidelines with explanations, commentary, and illustrations, offering easy-to-follow guidance on how to eliminate unnecessary architectural barriers for persons with disabilities.
