Equal Accessibility on Two Floors

Equal Accessibility on Two Floors

Postby AREND » Sat Nov 08, 2014 9:36 am

In converting a historic house to a library, which one is the most cost effective way to "comply with accessibility requirements" of the CBC?
1- add an elevator
2- add wheelchair lift
3- provide refuge area
4- arrange spaces to provide equal access on the first floor.

Chen's answer is 4. I completely disagree with this since this means providing the same books, functions, etc. that are on the second floor, on the first floor. It is almost equivalent to building two libraries as well as dual staff. Let me know what you think?

If the cover of his book is any indication! One quarter of the book is dedicated to the do's and don'ts of the ARE exam?!

I like this question, actually.
Since we do not have bldg plans, Wheelchair lift is practical and the least expensive compare to (1) and (3).
Yet, It can be a ground floor only-building for all we know, so (4) is the answer.

Hello Everyone, Back for my fourth try....I was determined to find this...take a look at 11B-206.2.3 exception 1.2 I think this is what justifies his answer.
