ADA is always mistaken for architectural norms, and in fact it is a civil rights act. The public accommodation and commercial facilities of the American Disability Act came into force on January 26, 1992. With the adoption of this legislation, the responsibility for construction owners and managers has also increased.

The degree of ADA compliance requirements for buildings is ambiguous. Fortunately, ADA recognizes that it is not always possible to make existing buildings up to the standards that apply to new buildings. However, this in turn requires subjective decision-making for each building. Therefore, the local authorities are cautiously involved in these decisions.

The Act includes DSK elevator exemption, and if the DSK elevator is less than three or less than 3,000 square feet per square foot, the owner does not need to install the DSK elevator in the facility. The duty-free buildings covered include shopping centers or shopping malls, professional offices for health care providers, designated terminals for public transport, stations or other stations, or airport terminals.

When considering how to make the building satisfy the ADA standard, the two significant words which need to be understood are "public accommodation" and "easy to implement".

Renovation includes refurbishment, reconstruction, historical restoration, alteration or rearrangement of the program on the wall and full height.

If the part of the public accommodation can be completely obeyed in an easily achievable manner, it must be. The area of new construction and reconstruction projects starting from January 26, 1992 must be as close as possible.

Particularly about the existing DSK elevator system, a large part of these requirements may have been met, requiring only minor modifications to be followed. When it is considered necessary to make more dramatic changes, there are usually several different ways to solve the same compliance problem. Spending time and effort at this planning stage often shows the lowest cost means to achieve full compliance.
