2010 ADA Standards:  Key Features and Elements

Course Description

The ADA is one of America’s most comprehensive pieces of civil rights legislation that prohibits discrimination and guarantees that people with disabilities have the same opportunities as everyone else to participate in the mainstream of American life — to enjoy employment opportunities, to purchase goods and services, and to participate in State and local government programs and services. The 2010 Standards set minimum requirements – both scoping and technical – for newly designed and constructed, or altered State and local government facilities, public accommodations, and commercial facilities to be readily accessible to and usable by individuals with disabilities.

This seven hour video course covers the fourth through tenth chapters of the 2010 ADA Standards for Accessible Design.   The material for this course is presented by simple narration and power point video presentation, including on-site, real world video examples in various accessible buildings used by both the public and private sector.

After completing this course participants will be able to:

  • Be able recognize what exterior and interior components can, and should comply with ADA standards.
  • Outline at least one design strategy based on ADA standards for the construction of either a public or private building.
  • Identify requirements for proper maneuvering space, clearance and accessible routes.
  • Summarize the options available to the design or building professional when designing a facility per the requirements of the ADA Standards.

Chapter 2 – Workers’ Compensation (60 minutes).  Employers in Florida are required by law to pay for the medical treatment and lost wages of employees who are injured on the job or suffer a job-related illness.  The underlying principle is that employers must assume the costs of injuries, illnesses and deaths that occur on the job. In Florida, workers’ compensation is regulated by the Department of Financial Services and the Office of the Judges of Compensation Claims, and enforced by the Florida Division of Workers’ Compensation.  This 1 hour chapter describes the rules and responsibilities of employers in complying with Florida Workers’ Compensation laws.

Chapter 4 – Florida Lien Law (60 minutes).  A lien is a specific legal process that can be used by contractors and others as a lawful remedy for securing payment for labor or materials that have been used to improve another person’s property.  Lien laws are also designed to give protection to laborers and material suppliers in the event of default by the contractor or property owner.   Unfortunately, many contractors, subcontractors and material suppliers do not understand the importance of filing the proper documents at the correct time–therefore forfeiting their chances of recovery.  This 1 hour chapter outlines the documents required, and the order in which they must be submitted in order to protect the claimant’s rights.

*Learning Objectives:  1)  Explain how lien laws protect the rights and interests of both the builder and the consumer 2)  Define what a lien is, as well as how and when a lien should be filed 3)  Understand both owner and contractor time limitations for filing and preserving lien supporting documents and lien rights.  The topics covered are:

A.  What is a lien and who is entitled to file?
B.  Notice of Commencement:  who files, when should the NOC be filed?  What must be included in the NOC?
C.  Contractor List:  what is it? And when must it be furnished, to whom?
D.  Notice to Owner:  who sends the NTO, and what information does it provide?
E.  Contractor Payment Affidavit:  what does this document state?  When must it be sent, by whom?
F.  Claims of Lien:  What is it?  When must it be filed, and what must it include?
G.  Timelines
H.  Statutes:  713 Part 1

 


Chapter 5 – Wind Mitigation (60 minutes).  This 1 hour chapter describes wind mitigation methodology, comparing the C-brace system and the X retrofittings.  The aftermath of past hurricanes in Florida has shown that one of major damaged structural components in residential homes is the gable-end wall or the gable-end truss for timber wall or masonry wall constructions, respectively.  As a result, a revised building code, “Standard for Hurricane resistant residential Construction” (SBCCI, 1993, 1999) was developed to require all gable-ends to be designed to resist hurricane force wind.  This research investigates two different retrofit systems: (1) X-bracing and (2) C-bracing to determine their structural performance under hurricane wind.

*Learning Objectives:  1)  Recognize the need for alternate, lower-cost means to the installation of gable-end bracing 2)  Identify new Florida Code requirements that address specific, identified mitigation measures 3)  Differentiate between the C-brace system and the X retrofittings. The topics covered are:

A.  Florida Statutes 553.844. Windstorm loss mitigation; requirements for roofs and opening protection.
B.  Investigation abstract, history and purpose.
C.  Methodology, construction of gable end walls, trusses, design
D.  Retrofits:  X-brace and C-brace
E.  Loading and data collection
F.  Results and Conclusions
