If you are a building owner, architect, builder or contractor for the design and construction of new facilities or modification of existing facilities, it is critical that you understand the new changes in the 4th edition of CSA B651-12 Accessible Design for the Built Environment. This revised standard contains the technical requirements for making buildings and other facilities accessible to persons with a range of physical, sensory or cognitive disabilities, and was developed to fulfill an expressed need for a national technical standard that covers many different types of buildings and environmental facilities. It can be referenced in whole or in part by a variety of adopting agencies or jurisdictions.
Significant changes to this edition include revised information on:
- Tactile walking surface indicators, standard and universal washrooms, and residential accommodation
- References for accessible outdoor recreational environments
