    Accessibility and Barrier-Free Design - Edmonton

    EVENT DATE: Friday, November 25, 2016
    Deadline to Register: November 18, 2016

    We gratefully acknowledge support from event hosts Staples Business Advantage, which has facilitated reduced registration costs for our members.

    Please note - It is highly recommended that attendees bring a copy (electronic or paper) of the Alberta Building Code 2014 to this seminar.



    This three-hour seminar will give participants knowledge of the application of commonly used barrier-free accessibility requirements based on the 2014 Alberta Building Code. The seminar will identify the application of various barrier-free design elements through open discussions, detailed diagrams and examples.

    The seminar will include a review of the following topics:

    • Interior path of travel: requirements and exemptions
    • Doors and doorways: widths and clearances, vestibules, latches, sliding/pocket doors
    • Design standards for ramps
    • Shower requirements and exceptions
    • Washroom design, including requirements for new construction, permissions for renovation projects and discussion on ‘grandfathering’ existing washrooms
    • Barrier-free relaxations, application procedure and fees
    • Good practice design: change rooms, overhead hazards, slip resistance of surfaces and additional barrier-free standards
