Last week in the beautiful Wisconsin Dells, the Wisconsin Healthcare Engineering Association (WHEA) put together an event to review many of the codes required for facilities in the Healthcare arena. Nova Polymer’s Director of Education, Bob Greenberger, had the privilege to present alongside Matt Budnik, Divisional Sales Director for SignScape, a division of InPro Corporation, on the many facets of the codes and requirements for ADA compliant signage.
Over 100 Architects, Designers, Engineers, and Facility Managers were in attendance, and we were surprised by the number of questions pouring in following Bob and Matt’s presentation. Receiving a large amount of questions, along with the attention paid on this topic, it is safe to say that ADA signs remain a real mystery at the facility level.
Many of the Facility Managers we encounter do not understand these accessibility codes and are not even sure which version of the ADA they should even be following. On top of that, they do not know where to find the answers. That’s where we come in…
Nova Polymers continues to provide continuing education to Architects and Designers on Accessibility and the ADA – 2010 Standard (SAD) for Room Identification Signs. The ADA codes are taught through our Quarterly ADA Webinar Series, which is a registered course with the American Institute of Architects and the IDCEC and is eligible for 1 Health Safety and Welfare Learning Unit. We also offer personalized Lunch & Learns that can be given at your facility. In 2015, we reached over 3,000 Architects, Designers, and Facilities Managers with our educational courses.
