    hi, I think this is a rehabilitation. If the ramps are built in a way that it would not harm to the original character of the building it would be ok. But once you remove it someday it shouldn't be effecting the structure. Its a balance and if you really need to build them but wont work with existing building, probably the project wont work there.

    Title II: all government building must shift programing of space to make the building accessible 

    Title III: Public accommodations (restaurants, theaters, retail spaces, etc.) must make "readily achievable" changes. 

    so it will come down to the use of the building. as long as the new additions are distinctive for the historic nature of the building.

     

    https://www.nps.gov/tps/standards/applying-rehabilitation/successful-rehab/new-construction.htm is a good site to flip through

    So, how would a person know about studying the National Park Service Standards for Preservation rules?

    I had other agencies mentioned for Historic and Environmental projects...

    They were not on my radar to study.

    Is there a list of resources or study material that I have missed?

    Thanks!
