Architectural Barriers Act (ABA)
The Architectural Barriers Act (ABA) is a federal law that requires buildings and facilities designed, built or altered with federal funds to be accessible to people with disabilities. It covers a wide range of physical barriers that could prevent access to buildings, such as stairs, doorways and elevators, and requires these barriers to be removed or modified to allow for equal access. Compliance with the ABA requires specialized expertise and knowledge of accessibility codes and guidelines, making it a specialized skill.
