Adapting Historic Campus Structures for Accessibility.
The issues involved in making accessibility modifications to buildings of historic value, architectural significance, or traditional interest are reviewed in this publication. A related document, ED 175 080, "Creating an Accessible Campus," contains information and design recommendations applicable to all buildings. The first part of the document discusses the characteristics of older buildings; reviews some of the access needs of handicapped persons; notes laws and policies governing preservation and access; and provides information on what progress has been made toward accessibility in older campus buildings. Projects presented in the second part are from six schools of architecture selected to develop design studies. Teams of architecture students developed design recommendations to achieve accessibility in an older campus building. A Technical Study Group reviewed the design solutions and suggested alternatives where appropriate. The appendices contain a list of state historic preservation officers, the California State Historical Building Code, the U.S. Department of Health, Education, and Welfare's Section 504 Regulations and Analysis Concerning Existing Facilities, a list of campuses reporting accessibility projects in older buildings, a bibliography, and an index.
