Tolerances and Acceptable Measurements under the ADA

ADA Standards are complex, understand the most compliant ways to utilize construction tolerances.

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) has been enacted for nearly three decades, yet business owners, A/E/C professionals, and contractors still aren’t getting it right. To add difficulty to the already complex ADA Standards, there is much disagreement and confusion surrounding the idea of construction tolerances. Because different jurisdictions vary so widely on their views on allowing construction tolerances, it can be difficult to navigate the right way to design and build for ADA compliance. This topic will show you why construction tolerances are essential, and how to go about working with tolerances in real-life situations using examples from the field.
