  • A refreshed title to reflect the intention of the handbook, which is to support universal design and access to and throughout buildings;
  • Incorporating BCBC 2018 accessibility design requirements as well as intent statements and attributions to provide the reasons for requirements and support Code application;
  • Renewed commentary, to increase clarity and readability, and illustrations, to represent diverse building occupants; and
  • Links to leading standards, programs, and resources to provide additional accessibility guidance.
