Jeffrey Havelin, PE
The purpose of this (One-Hour) course is to provide the architect or engineer with a fundamental understanding and the technical knowledge associated with making historic properties accessible.
Historically, most buildings and landscapes were not designed to be readily accessible for people with disabilities. In recent years, however, emphasis has been placed on preserving historically significant properties, and on making these properties and the activities within them more accessible to people with disabilities. With the passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act in 1990, access to properties open to the public is now a civil right.
This course is based entirely on the web version of the National Park Service Preservation Brief 32 which is entitled “Making Historic Properties Accessible” as published by the National Park Service- U.S. Department of the Interior.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials.
