Weekly Highlights

AIA Michigan members- Jan Culbertson,  Eric Messing,  Matt Guinta Celeste Novak,  Stuart Pigler (Deputy District Director) Mike Bishop- met with Representative Bishop. He recommends that AIA National meet with DC tax reform committee. He was very gracious to us in our meeting and said that he knew AIA. He was familiar with the tax credits and realized their value on some local projects. However, although he thinks it's an unrealistic goal, the tax reform committee is aiming for removing all tax credits.

Stepping Thru Accessible Public Multi-Family Residential Facilities
Live Webinar - September 15 @ 10:00 am - 3:30 pm
5.0 LU/HSW

DESCRIPTION - Multi-family housing is one of the more complex building types. Depending on when the facility was built and where the funds come from and who oversees the project, you can have a multitude of different regulations. In an overview and a scoping sense we will review the ADA Standards, the FHA, UFAS, and California Building Codes both 11A and 11B and compare the requirements for each. We will also touch upon alterations and transition plans and how this affects different types of multi-family housing projects.
