Americans with Disabilities Act and Historic Rehabilitation (Webinar)

November 12, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm


Join Heritage Ohio for this webinar, to increase the understanding of when it is essential to upgrade a structure to meet guidelines for the American’s with Disabilities Act and when the Ohio Building Code will require changes. It is equally important to understand when changes are NOT required. Guidance will cover how historic properties can be made accessible while preserving the historic character; what steps can be taken to conduct a simple audit as a planning step; how to review applicable codes; and when to consult professionals. Wouldn’t it be great to avoid adding an elevator to a small budget project? Understanding the scope of the project undertaken and how to maintain those limits increases the chances of success when applying for grants, when controlling costs on the project, and when improving the building to welcome the public. The presentation will be led by Elizabeth Corbin Murphy, FAIA and Alice Sloan of Perspectus Architecture from Cleveland/Akron. Elizabeth Murphy, FAIA, NCIDQ, LEED GA, Perspectus Principal, is an AIA Ohio Gold Medal Architect dedicated to preservation and restoration technology and design. She consults with building owners and architects regarding state and federal rehabilitation tax credits, design related to old or historic structures, detailed restoration specifications, historic interiors and design guidelines for historic urban centers. Alice Sloan is a Technical Preservation Specialist with a broad portfolio of experience in technical assessment, historic preservation research and condition assessments for proposed adaptive use, rehabilitation and restoration projects. She is a graduate of the Architectural Conservation Master’s Program at the University of Pennsylvania.
