Sort of a 2 part question here:
Can anyone shed some light on the relationship between Ch 11 IBC, ANSI 117.1, and ADA standards?
And while preparing for the PA test, is there one to focus my efforts on that will cover all the accessibility bases? Any notable differences we should keep in mind that I've overlooked?
I struggle to understand which standard is applicable in exactly which situation, and realize the actual standards they outline are nearly identical. When are we concerned with ADA standards (I realize ADA is not a code) versus IBC Ch 11? Is Ch 11 effectively incorporating the whole of ANSI 117.1 by reference? Do they all apply and it's a matter of following the most stringent standard?
An understanding of this would really help my understanding at work, as well as understanding the context of what I'm studying.
Thanks for any input
