Do you think ADA barrier removal obligations apply to stairs between floors in an elevator building? Please provide code or other regulatory citation that supports your conclusion. Thanks
Years ago the California State Architect told us that stair requirements did not need to be applied if we provided an elevator. But as time went on, we realized that they were not the best source for compliance, and proceeded to make them comply. They should comply. Don't have time to cite code/law, but read the ADA as it says they generally should, unless you can find something that exempts them from compliance.
