A building constructed in 1981 with federal funds was destroyed. What standards do I need to use to rebuild?
The accessibility standards for federal buildings and facilities have recently been revised. GSA’s new ABA standards, which became effective on May 8, 2006, apply to all federally funded facilities, except residential, postal and military facilities, which are covered by standards enforced by other federal agencies. The U.S. Postal Service similarly updated its standards that govern post offices and other postal facilities effective October 1, 2005. The standards applicable to residential housing remain as described above. Further information on the status of these efforts is posted on the Access Board’s Web site .
