    "Differences between ADA and Indiana Accessibility"
    The state of Indiana has adopted the 2012 International Building Code (IBC) to provide minimum requirements for building construction, including accessibility.  The 2012 IBC provides scoping (i.e., what, where and how many) and references the 2009 ICC A117.1 Accessible and Usable Buildings and Facilities for technical criteria (i.e. how to).  There are many federal laws that also include accessibility requirements for buildings.  Two of these are the American's with Disabilities Act and the Fair Housing Act.  The ICC has been working to meet or exceed these federal requirements.  This class will review where the IBC and ICC A117.1 exceed or have a different approach than the federal requirements.  Discussions will include the history, the intent and the reasons why.  Topics are differences in scope, accessible routes between stories, accessible means of egress, institutional and residential facilities, coordination, revisions, and new ideas.  This information will include the Indiana amendments to the IBC.


    "Introduction to Indiana Accessibility"
    The state of Indiana has adopted the 2012 International Building Code (IBC) to provide minimum requirements for building construction, including accessibility.  The 2012 IBC provides scoping (i.e., what, where and how many) and references the 2009 ICC A117.1 Accessible and Usable Buildings and Facilities for technical criteria (i.e. how to).  This presentation is a general overview of the accessibility requirements code and standard.  Discussions will include the history, the intent and the reasons behind the requirements.  Topics are the general approach, exceptions, basis for the technical criteria, building blocks, entrances, elevators, accessible means of egress, accessible routes, general site and building elements, plumbing, customer service, special occupancy requirements, recreation, dwelling and sleeping units.  This information will include the Indiana amendments to the IBC.
