(Attach Needed Survey Forms to this Summary Sheet.)
At least one accessible route complying with 4.3 must connect accessible building or facility entrances with all accessible spaces and elements within the building or facility.
In a multi-story building, an accessible elevator must provide access to each level unless a ramp complying with 4.8 is provided. Use of stairs or platform lifts to provide access in new construction is limited. If the building is less than three stories, or has less than 3,000 square feet per story, an elevator is not required unless the building is the professional office of a health care provider, a shopping center or shopping mall, or a transportation facility. These terms are defined in 36 CFR _36.401(d).
All objects that overhang or protrude into circulation paths must comply with 4.4; and ground and floor surfaces along accessible routes must comply with 4.5.
Survey each building lobby and corridor with Form 12: Building Lobbies and Corridors. You may also need Form 19: Signage and Form 20: Alarms. If a door or gate is across an accessible route, use Form 11: Doors and Gates. If drinking fountains, public telephones, or automated teller machines are located in a building lobby or corridor, use Form 5: Drinking Fountains; Form 6: Telephones; and Form 22: Automated Teller Machines (ATMs).
List ramps to be surveyed:
Survey each ramp with Form 7: Ramps.
List elevators to be surveyed:
Survey each elevator or bank of elevators with Form 13: Elevators.
Interior and exterior stairs connecting levels that are not connected by an elevator, ramp, or other accessible means of vertical access must comply with 4.9. In new construction, this condition may occur in facilities subject to the elevator exemption (see 4.1.3(5) Exception 1), or where mezzanines are exempt in restaurants (see 5.4).
List stairs to be surveyed:
Survey stairs with Form 8: Stairs in those buildings and facilities only where the levels are not connected by an elevator, ramp, or other accessible means of vertical access.
Platform Lifts: 4.1.3(5) Exception 4
In new construction, platform lifts complying with 4.11 and applicable State or local codes may be used in lieu of an elevator only under the following conditions:
(a) To provide an accessible route to a performing area in an assembly occupancy.
(b) To comply with the wheelchair viewing position, line-of-sight, and dispersion requirements of 4.33.3.
(c) To provide access to incidental occupiable spaces and rooms which are not open to the general public and which house no more than five persons, including but not limited to equipment control rooms and projection booths.
(d) To provide access where existing site constraints or other constraints make use of a ramp or an elevator infeasible.
Survey each platform lift with Form 9: Platform Lifts.
