St.Augustine
Assessment Report

Prepared By:
Facilities Planning & Construction
Physical Plant Division
Environmental Health & Safety

July 2007
UF UNIVERSITY of
UF FLORIDA


I 1










Introduction


This document is intended to be a general assessment of 34 State-owned buildings in the City of St.
Augustine that are potentially being turned over to the University of Florida for initial rehabilitation and
future operations and maintenance. A team of University professionals, including representatives from
the Division of Facilities, Planning & Construction, Physical Plant, and Environmental Health & Safety,
spent over 300 hours evaluating structures, finishes, utilities infrastructure, life and fire safety, and ADA
accessibility with an eye toward assembling initial costs necessary to bring the condition of these
structures up to current codes and standards and to allow continued maintenance to begin under the
University's physical plant maintenance standards.

Each category of assessment, enumerated in the "component" column, was valued from 0, meaning not
surveyed, through 1, meaning no work necessary, to 5, indicating that complete replacement of that
component is necessary. Costs associated with these assessments are the best estimates of those
professionals conducting the surveys and are not intended to be actual construction prices. These
numbers include "soft costs" associated with managing the projects such as design, permitting,
inspections, contingencies, etc.


Proposed Historic Area Master Plan

The University of Florida proposes a partnership with the City of St. Augustine and local host
government to develop a master plan for the historic St. Augustine. The master plan will identify the
original town plan, significant buildings and sites, pedestrian and circulation, traffic, parking, wayfinding
through the historic area.


Funding Request: $500,000

COMPONENT RATING COMMENTS
Ceiling 2 Routine Maintenance Needed basement exposed concrete
Ceiling 4 Major Repairs Needed 1st floor plaster
Ceiling 3 Minor Repairs Needed 2nd floor plaster
Electrical 1- No Work Needed OK
Exterior 4 Major Repairs Needed Poured concrete lintels over windows/doors and beams over the southeast patio
areas have deteriorated to the point that rusting and missing reinforcing steel is
exposed. This condition has significant implications with regards to steel that can-
not be seen inside the remainder of the coquina rock structure. Precast decorative
window trim pieces are cracked and should be replaced, requiring custom fabrica-
S" tion. Wrought iron railings at all upper porches are deteriorated and should be

caused roof damage on lower roofs where scuppers currently empty. Although the
tile roof has been recently replaced, perimeter flashing of flat roofs still has leaks
causing interior and exterior damage. Granite carved walls at entries have pieces
of missing stone and may need complete replacement. Windows appear to be in
good condition and leak free. Fountain on west side of building should either be in
filled or restored to original condition. Existing exit signs contain hazardous mate-
rial and should be replaced along with an assessment of additional exit sign needs.
The museum and basement storage are currently protected by an automatic fire
sprinkler, however, the remainder of the building needs to be sprinkled, which will
require an assessment of the existing pipe sizes and water pressure to the building.
Fenestration 2 Routine Maintenance Needed doors: heavy wood
Fenestration 3 Minor Repairs Needed windows: Wood S.H. 9/9

State-Owned Buildings in
St Augustine
ADA Review











Caveat


This report is submitted as a result of the potential transfer of state-owned
buildings in St. Augustine, managed by the City of St. Augustine to the
University of Florida. This is an independent report requested for proactive
reasons and not the result of any action against the State of Florida, the City of
St. Augustine or the University of Florida. As such, it is a tool to be used by
the University of Florida to provide options for improved access to the
transferred facilities. The comments and suggestions contained within are
based on the guidelines in the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, Section 504 (Public
Law 93-112, as amended, 34 CFR part 104), the Americans with Disabilities
Act of 1990 (Public Law 101-336, 42 U.S.C., 12101-12132), and the Florida
Building Code (FBC, Chapter 11).


Historic Designation

There is some question as to which buildings are designated Historic under
Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act. The appropriate
University group will need to make the final determination as to which
buildings are covered under Section 106. For purposes of this report only 7
structures are considered historic:

1. Government House c. 1710 (restoration and reconstruction)
2. De Mesa Sanchez House ca. 1760 (expanded in 1760's & ca. 1830)
3. Arrivas House c. 1740
4. Parades Dodge House ca. 1808
5. Cerveau House ca. 1885
6. Hass House ca. 1880
7. Joaneda House ca. 1806

Recommendation:
1. Appropriate University committee should determine which buildings
come under Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act.











Project Description


Dr. Kenneth Osfield, ADA Coordinator for the University of Florida,
conducted an ADA review of the facilities on July 5 and July 19, 2007. The
review included:
An ADA review of the State-owned buildings under the
management of the City of St. Augustine. (Refer to Appendix
A for a complete list of buildings.) A total of 34 buildings are
listed in the inventory.

Historic facilities -7 structures.

Reconstructed facilities -27 structures (1963-1966; 1976-83)

The audit for each building included:

Review exterior access to each facility. Path of travel to
and from parking and bus stops to the facility.

Review exterior entry points and evaluate how patrons are
informed of which entrances are accessible.

Interior review the review will included all public areas
(restrooms, meeting space, exhibition space, retail, housing,
educational)

The report includes a narrative report and a building
specific report with building-by-building deficiencies.

The audit will not include

Any review of private offices, equipment rooms, and
other non-public space.

The report will not include any cost estimates for
correcting the non-compliant items.

The following report is based upon an on-site review of the State-owned
facilities in St. Augustine under the management of the City of St. Augustine
conducted by Dr. Kenneth J. Osfield, University of Florida ADA Compliance.
Prior to the onsite review two reports were reviewed that provided valuable
information about the properties reviewed. Refer to Appendices C for
information about the reports.













Introduction


State and local governments have been required since 1973, under the
Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (Section 504) to ensure that


I No qualifiedperson with a disability shall, on the basis of the disability, be
excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of or otherwise be
subjected to discrimination under program or activity which receives or benefits
from Federal financial assistance.


Prior to 1990, Section 504 was a piece of legislation that did not fulfill all the
expectations of people with disabilities and those that developed the
legislation. It was not until 1990, when the Americans with Disabilities Act
was signed, that people with disabilities began to make gains in accessing
programs and services, and facilities operated and maintained by state and
local governments.

Seventeen years after the Americans with Disabilities Act and thirty-four
years after the Rehabilitation Act (Section 504) were signed there is still
considerable discussion about what the legal requirements are for state and
local governmental agencies under both ADA and 504. Some agencies see it
as a moral more than a legal responsibility and provide services to patrons
with no thought of cost, while other agencies fight the smallest cost using the
defense that it is not their responsibility.

The State of Florida has made a moral and financial commitment to provide
access to programs and services by individuals with disabilities and with the
change in management for the properties the issue of ADA needs to be
addressed by the State, the City of St. Augustine, and the University of
Florida. On campus there are many departments that will need to review
various aspects of the properties in question and the ADA issues are but one
area that will require attention.


Historic Preservation

Under section 11-4.1.7 (Accessible buildings: Historic preservation) of the
Florida Building Code the general rule when considering ADA access:











Alterations to a qualified historic building or facility shall comply
ii ilh Section 11-4.1.6 (Accessible buildings: Alterations), the
applicable technical specifications of Section 11-4.2 through
Section 11-4.35 and the applicable special application Section 11-
5 through Section 11-10 unless it is determined in accordance i i/h
the procedures in Section 11-4.1.7(2) that compliance i i/h the
requirements for accessible routes (exterior and interior), ramps,
entrances, or toilets would threaten or destroy the historic
significance of the building or facility in which case the alternative
requirements in Section 11-4.1.7(3) may be usedfor the feature.
(For the full-titles of the following sections refer to Appendices B
11-4.1. 7(2) and 11-4.1.7(3).

It should be noted that the appropriate University agency should
determine which facilities come under Section 106 of the National
Historic Preservation Act.


University of Florida's Obligations

For a public institution such as the University of Florida, it is clear that it is
covered under the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Rehabilitation Act
of 1973, as amended (Section 504). Together, the two pieces of legislation
provide wide sweeping protection to students, staff, faculty, visitors, and
ultimately to anyone taking part in any program, service or activity sponsored
by the University.

The University of Florida, under the ADA, is subject to all Titles of the ADA,
however, the major responsibilities come under Title I (employment), Title II
(state and local government), and Title IV (communications). It is also
subject to the provisions within Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973
for its treatment of students, staff, faculty and visitors.

Within the guidelines of Section 504 [34 CFR 104.7(a)(1980)] and ADA an
employer (UF) is required to coordinate the institutions compliance efforts.
How that is achieved is up to the discretion of the institution.

As a title II entity under the ADA and a recognized 504 entity (funded by
federal funds) the University is required to provide access to all programs and
services. How does this apply to the historic St. Augustine properties?
Because many of the facilities are historic it still needs to be determined
which facilities can be modified and how. At the least alternate access will
need to be provided as specified in chapter 11 of the Florida Building Code
(11-4.1.7).











Feasibility of Completing Recommendations

The recommendations within this report and the facility review report for the
most part are within reason. The majority of facility issues are minor (ramps,
directional signage, handrails, policy development). Some of the issues are
outside the jurisdiction of the University and will require the City taking the
lead (parking access, sidewalk access to and from parking and bus stops to the
historic district, sidewalk curb ramps, drainage grates within paths of travel).
Overall, the recommendations are all attainable as long as funding is provided.


Designation of Appropriate Staff to Handle ADA & 504 Issues

The University has professional staff in place with very specific
responsibilities under ADA and 504. The UF ADA Office is responsible for
all ADA facility reviews, manages the complaint process (visitors, students,
faculty and staff), employee issues, compliance issues, and ADA facility
compliance. UF has had an ADA coordinator since 1989, one year prior to
the ADA being signed.

ADA Office
The ADA coordinator at UF is the person designated as the ADA Compliance
Officer and handles all issues related to compliance and facility access.


Project Overview

As a result of the recommendation that The University of Florida take over
managerial responsibilities for the State-owned properties in St. Augustine
that are under the management of the City of St. Augustine, the UF ADA
coordinator notified university administration that a review would need to be
conducted in order to obtain a clear picture of the properties and what may or
may not be needed to bring the facilities into compliance with both Section
504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act
(ADA). The ADA Office made this request not as a result of any pending
complaints but instead in a proactive manner to ensure that the University
facilities are compliant.

The areas of review are specified in the Project Description section on page 7.
The review will focus on facility compliance only.

Facility review The facility review was completed in 2 phases, with phase-I
taking place on July 5, 2007, and the second review taking place on July 19,
2007.











Facility Overview


The following sections are an overview of various aspects of the external
accessibility and the interior facility conditions. A facility-by-facility review
can be found in Appendices A. The building deficiencies have also been
entered into the Facilities Planning STARS Building Assessment module.

Facility Access
The State-owned facilities under review vary in age significantly with at least
7 considered historic (c. 1710 to 1885) and 25 other structures built or
reconstructed from 1962 to 1983.

The use varies from educational facilities, administration and office, retail
rental stores and living areas (apartments). This report provides a building by
building review for each facility.

Due to the age of the area involved there are inherent problems that will
impact accessibility issues.

With the exception of the Government House with its freight elevator none of
the other facilities have any ADA vertical access (stairs only). In the case of
the Government House, vertical access could be provided using the current
freight elevator (alternate access), however it does not provide access to all
sections of the upper level.

Street access becomes problematic in that many of the adjoining streets and
sidewalks are very narrow which doesn't allow for a continuous safe and
protected path of travel. Once access to the old section is attained access is
somewhat easier in that some of the areas are pedestrian traffic only and the
cars on the areas with vehicle access are held to a 5 mph. Many of the street
related access issues need to be discussed with the City of St. Augustine (side
walks, curb ramp, pedestrian cross walks, parking, etc...).

Staff Commitment
The university staff are very involved with the University's commitment to
students, staff and visitors with disabilities and will continue to provide
consulting services to the UF Historic committee, City of St. Augustine and
others.


Exterior Facility Review

Parking Access
One of the first areas that visitors, students and staff are exposed to at any
tourist area is the availability of parking. As such, it is a very important











component to any agency master plan and deserves very close attention and
constant review. The buildings within the scope of this review are contained
within a pedestrian area and parking is very limited to a few areas. The
majority of parking is outside the scope of the properties in question as they
are provided by the City (Garage) or Federal Government (Fort). There is a
parking garage and surface lot adjacent to the area in question. Currently all
parking associated with the properties in question are reserved for store
owners, apartment renters.

Recommendations:

2. Meet with both the City and Federal agencies that oversee the tourist
parking in the area to ensure the spaces are compliant for size, number and
provide safe paths of travel to and from sidewalks.

Sidewalk Access
Overall, the sidewalks to and from the parking lots, bus stops and to and from
historic buildings vary in terms of access. Many of the sidewalks serving the
historic district are narrow with very few compliant curb ramps. However,
one of the main streets (St. George) has been converted into a pedestrian only
zone so access is spacious and accommodating. The structures off the street
however have inherent problems due to the elevation differences of the street
and the shops. Many of the shops are 10-12 inches above grade thus making
code access currently non-existent. Streets such as Cuna Street also present
problems due to lack of sidewalks, curb access and poor walking surface on
street surface (brick pavers).

Recommendation:

3. Meet with City of St. Augustine to discuss compliant sidewalk access in
and around the historic district.

Natural Path (Crushed Stone) Walkway Access
Many of the facilities within the review are connected to one another through
the use of crushed rock/mulch (limestone, bark mulch, etc...) walkways.
These areas need to be reviewed and regularly maintained. During the time of
this review many of the areas appear to have not been maintained. For
example the crushed rock path to the Gonzalez restrooms are at least 3-4
inches lower than the concrete patio that provides access and thus the
restrooms (though marked accessible) are in fact not accessible.











Recommendation:


4. Staff on both locations should meet to discuss how they want to provide
access in the future. Should impervious surfaces be used or do we
continue with natural surfaces already in place.

Drainage Grates Located in Sidewalks (issue for the City of St. Augustine)
For the most part there are at least 3 drainage grates located within walking
surfaces in the areas reviewed. Those grates that are not compliant with 11-
4.5.4 are under the City's jurisdiction and will need to be reviewed.

Any grate within a walking surface shall comply with 11-4.5.4 ("if gratings
are located in walking surfaces, then they shall have spaces no greater than 12
inch wide in one direction [refer to figure 8g in the FBC]. If gratings have
elongated openings, then they shall be placed so that the long dimension is
perpendicular to the dominant direction of traffic" [refer to figure 8h in the
FBC]).

Recommendation:

5. Meet with City of St. Augustine to discuss grates within pedestrian
pathways and develop plan to upgrade non-compliant grates. Location of
grates in question:

a. St. George and Treasury Streets large street rated grate that is
within the pedestrian area and is non-compliant due to size of
openings.

b. St. George and Hypolita Streets large street rated grate that is
within the pedestrian area and is non-compliant due to size of
openings.

c. Tilley Hat shop there is a grate in front of the Tilley hat shop that
has openings that are 1 inch wide.

Curb Ramp Access (issue for the City of St. Augustine)
Curb ramps need to be reviewed by the City of St. Augustine and corrections
and upgrades completed as necessary. Please note, that because the FDOT
and the ADAAG provide a greater degree of accessibility they override the
FBC in the case of 11-4.29.2. In any case any system other than truncated
domes are noncompliant, especially any system that uses grooves of any sort
cut or fixed into the surface (saw cut, diamond mess, etc).

The appropriate agencies should meet as soon as possible to discuss a City
standard for the detectable warning system and curb ramps in general. It is
recommended that a representative from the City Facilities Planning Office,











City Code Compliance Office, and UF ADA Office meet to discuss FDOT,
FBC and ADAAG regulations for curb ramps.

Recommendation:

6. Meet with City of St. Augustine to discuss compliant curb ramp access.

Exterior Directional Signage Overview
Many of the facility entrances (retail areas) are not accessible and in few
instances there is alternate access provided. The alternate access is not always
obvious.

Signs should be installed that would make navigation in and around the
historic district easier for visitors and town residents with mobility related
disabilities.

Recommendation:

7. At all noncompliant pedestrian facility entrances, install directional sign
that will inform patrons where the nearest accessible entrance is located.
The sign should include the wheelchair pictogram and the text "wheelchair
access" along with an arrow leading to the direction of the nearest
entrance. The signs need to be very visible with a functional and clear
message. When access is not available install sign informing patrons what
the next step is. For programs, some sort of alternate access should be
provided (written materials, audio materials, etc.).

Picnic Area Accessibility
For those areas with kitchen service and subsequent picnic table areas there
should be a compliant path of travel to the kitchen area and the surrounding
picnic tables. Tables should meet specifications in 11-4.32 (tables):

Recommendations:

8. In each separate picnic location provide a compliant path of travel to a
minimum of one picnic table (preferably all).

9. Install at least one table in each area that will allow for wheelchair seating.
The best tables to use are those with fixed benches and open ends that
extend at least 19 inches and have a minimum of 30 inches between the
two benches (these tables allow for two wheelchair users, one on each
end). Accessible picnic tables should comply with 11-4.32 of the FBC.
There are other designs, which remove one of the fixed seats, but these
designs then limit the number of people that can use the table.











Automatic Door Operating Devices at Main Building Entrances
(Government House only)
There is no requirement under either the FBC or the ADAAG to provide
automatic doors in any facility. The only time automatic doors are required
are when the doors cannot be adjusted to the correct manual opening force
requirements (8.51bf. for exterior doors and 51bf for interior doors). UF
Construction Standards call for automatic door opening devices at all main
entrances. Only one of the properties would fall under this requirement
(Government House).

Recommendation:

10. Install auto door at east side ramp entrance of the Government House.

Ramped Facility Entrances
This is one of the weakest areas within the facilities under review. Many of
the existing ramps are noncompliant, in poor shape or non-existent. Those
areas with specific ramp deficiencies have been addressed individually within
the building review sections of this report and Facilities STARS. Many of the
retail areas have no ramped access. Overall the areas of concern are:

Recommendations:

11. Educational facilities wooden ramps installed must comply with all
aspects of the FBC, including section 11-4.8 (ramps). Ramps shall
comply with slope and rise (11-4.8.2), landings (11-4.8.4) and handrails
(11-4.8.5). Currently, both new and old ramps at many of the areas have
many noncompliant features. Install compliant ramps (refer to specific
building comments).

12. Retail areas As a result of the pedestrian zone at St. George Street there
is an opportunity to provide ramped access to many of the shops that
currently do not have ADA access. Access should be provided as long as
the historical integrity of the area is not impacted. Install a raised platform
(5 ft. x 5 ft.) at various entrances with a ramp to the platform.

Generally speaking, when ramps are used the slope and rise should be as
gradual as possible with the preference at less than a 1:20 slope. In many
instances this is not possible but it should be the design goal of all projects to
eliminate all sloped surfaces greater than 1:20.











Vertical Access


Exterior Stair Access
The external stairs at many of the buildings are not compliant primarily due to
the lack of handrails. The handrails are noncompliant with many aspects of
11-4.9.4 and 11-4.26. To be compliant handrails must meet the following
code specifications as listed in 11-4.9.4 and figure 39:

Recommendations:

13. Install compliant handrails at all stairs within the facilities under review.

a. Handrails shall be continuous along both sides of stairs. The inside
handrail on switchback or dogleg stairs shall always be continuous.

b. If handrails are not continuous, they shall extend at least 12 inches
beyond the top riser and at least 12 inches plus the width of one
tread beyond the bottom riser. At the top, the extension shall be
parallel with the floor or ground surface. At the bottom, the
handrail shall continue to slope for a distance of the width of one
tread from the bottom riser; the remainder of the extension shall be
horizontal. Handrail extension shall comply with 11-4.4.

c. The clear space between handrails and wall shall be 11/ inches.

d. Gripping surfaces shall be uninterrupted by newel posts, other
construction elements, or obstructions.

e. Top of handrail gripping surfaces shall be mounted between 34
inches and 38 inches above stair nosing.

f. Ends of handrails shall be either rounded or returned smoothly to
floor, wall or post.

g. Handrails shall not rotate within their fittings.

The handrails are also required to be compliant with 11-4.26:

h. The diameter or width of the gripping surfaces of a handrail or
grab bar shall be 114 to 1 /2 inches, or the shape shall provide an
equivalent gripping surface. If handrails or grab bars are mounted
adjacent to a wall, the space between the wall and the grab bar
shall be 1 /2 inches.












Interior Facility Review


Restroom Signage
There are only 3 public restrooms (Government House, Gonzalez Restrooms,
Public restrooms near Salcedo Kitchen) available within the facilities under
review. Accessible restrooms should have the following:

1. Wheelchair and gender specific pictograms installed in the correct location
on the wall adjacent to the latch side of the door and at a mounting height
of 60 inches above the finish floor to the centerline of the sign.

2. Signs should be in Braille and raised letters and pictograms shall have the
equivalent verbal description placed directly below the pictogram. It is
recommended that all pictograms used be raised and tactile.

3. Signs should not be installed on the door. The only sign that should be
located on the door is the decal for an automatic door-opening device
(when available).

4. Directional signage should located around the city informing patrons
where restrooms are located.

Signs need to be consistent and code compliant.

Recommendation:

14. Have UF Physical Plant install new compliant signage. Install directional
signage around facilities that will inform patrons of the location of
restrooms.

Door Handle
Florida Building Code requires that door hardware comply with section 11-
4.13.9 of the FBC. The section states that "handles, pulls, latches, locks, and
other operating devices on accessible doors shall have a shape that is easy to
grasp with one hand and does not require tight grasping, tight pinching, or
twisting of the wrist to operate. Lever-operated mechanisms, push-type
mechanisms, and U-shaped handles are acceptable designs."

All public areas should all have compliant door hardware, no matter the age of
the facility.

Door hardware does not seem to be an issue at the present time.

Restroom Accessibility
Visitors to the area should have access to accessible restrooms. There are
only 3 public restrooms (Government House, Gonzalez Restrooms, Public











restrooms near Salcedo Kitchen) available within the facilities under review.
For specific information about the deficiencies of each restroom refer to
individual facility review documents.

Recommendations:

15. Install family style restrooms in all three areas.


Historic Facility Policy Development

General Statement on Accessibility
When working with disability related issues it is a wise practice to have
reasons and justification for why things are done in a certain way. This way,
if complaints are filed the University does not come off as arbitrary and
capricious in its decisions. It is a wise practice to think ahead and develop and
implement policies that will provide an opportunity for people with
disabilities to have equal access to the programs, services and activities
sponsored by the University. It is always better to be proactive then reactive.
With the development of good, sound policies the disabled community will be
afforded better access and the University will have more consistent and well
thought out responses for its constituents.

Educational Areas Access Policy
It is recommended that the University develop a facility-wide policy that
addresses educational and demonstration access within the properties. The
policy should address overall program and service access, existing educational
space, future space, funding, alternate to those areas that may not currently be
accessible. The committee should also outline the procedures for the
oversight of assuring that all programs and services are accessible, whether
that means upgrading facilities or providing a procedure by which, alternate
access to non-accessible areas is provided. Ultimately the goal is to provide
equal access to all programs, services and activities offered by the University.

World Wide Web Access Policy
Any website design dedicated to the facilities shall comply with ADA
standards for accessibility. Provide accessibility statement on the facilities
under UF's direction.

Parking Lot Access Policy
Usually the first contact anyone will have with an educational program like
the St. Augustine properties is when they try to park their cars. As such, the
first impression is often set before they even get out of their cars and visit or
take part in any activity associated with the program. You can never satisfy











all the people all the time, but with good policies and consistent oversight and
implementation of those policies many problems can be eliminated. Disabled
parking availability is no exception, and the best way to handle the issue is for
the University to constantly review its parking inventory; especially the
placement of disabled parking spaces.

Currently parking is limited within the historic district. All parking within the
facilities in question are reserved for staff and tenants.

Recommendation:

16. Review parking areas within the facilities in question to determine if it is
possible to provided disabled parking spaces.


Facility-Wide Committee Review Process

Facility Design and Development Review Team
One of the most important components of any campus has to be the facility
review process that is in place. I say this, because of the amount of money
that goes into design, development and construction of new facilities. With
that said, it then stands to reason that when mistakes are made in the process,
those mistakes are generally very costly. Costly in that the project opening
can be delayed, and extra funds might be needed to correct the deficiencies
discovered. As a result it is very important to involve as many staff as
possible in the design and review development phase of all construction
projects. The process should be in place for both major projects (over $1
million) and minor projects (under $1 million).

One of the biggest mistakes made in the design and review process is to
assume that the architects, construction managers and various subcontractors
will design, develop and build to code. Even with all the review phases in
place, there are always going to be items that slip by and cause problems
during the review phase of any project. The University should dictate what
they want and expect in their facilities during the design and construction
phases and not leave it to the architect, construction manager and
subcontractors. Those individuals are after all, advisors to the University.
Hence, it is important to have as many people as possible review the design
submittals for all aspects of code compliance and special interest needs. That
review should not only involve the Facilities Planning, Physical Plant, Code
Compliance, and ADA staff but also other key staff involved in issues related
to facilities. In case of ADA compliance the review should also involve
members from the community with disabilities.
