Building and energy codes weave their way into the fabric of the majority of architecture projects. The American Institute of Architects represents the profession on these important issues by supporting member architects? participation in code development and adoption processes. As a group, architects may be the most significantly affected by, and the most significant users of the codes. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a standard that governs the construction and alteration of places of public accommodation, commercial facilities, and state and local government facilities. Check back throughout the month of May to see what resources AIA has to educate you on codes and accessibility issues!
