ADA: Walks and Sidewalks Mobile App

The ADA: Walks and Sidewalks mobile app deals with accessibility topics which can be applicable to construction jobs typically submitted to Division of the State Architect. Relevant citations of accessibility regulations have been provided. The app is intended for use by DSA staff and as a resource for design experts to support more consistent statewide norms for plan evaluation and construction inspection of projects within the jurisdiction of Division of the State Architect. Some of the items covered: scoping requirements and exceptions, alteration projects, surface material transition, slip resistant, stable, and firm continuous common surface material, location of all gratings and adjacent surfaces.
