Best Practices in Design: Balancing Local, State & Federal Requirements to Ensure Accessibility

1/15/2008 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM

Chicago, Springfield and Carbondale Distance Learning

The Bureau of Accessibility and Safety Systems (BASS) and Illinois ADA Project host an ADA Distance Learning session on "Best Practices in Design: Balancing Local, State and Federal Requirements to Ensure Accessibility". Architects and designers are faced with a myriad of rules and regulations governing accessible design which may require their professional judgment to determine which provides greater access. In this session, a panel of speakers will discuss and debate this issue and engage in a dialogue about achieving minimal compliance versus designing accessible and useable environments.

Speakers

  • Jack Catlin, AIA, LCM Architects;
  • Doug Anderson, LCM Architects;
  • John Wodatch, Chief, Disability Rights Section, U.S. Department of Justice; and
  • Joe Russo, Deputy Commissioner, Chicago Mayor's Office for People with Disabilities
