How ADA Solutions products contribute toward earning LEED Credits, specifically for LEED Neighborhood Development Project Certification.
The information below was obtained from the LEED 2009 for Neighborhood Development PDFs and checklists.
The LEED 2009 for Neighborhood Development Project Checklist and Scorecard clearly outlines the need for safe pedestrian walkways and crosswalks. In fact, under the Neighborhood Pattern and Design Section, “Walkable Streets” is listed as a Prerequisite. In addition, “Walkable Streets” is also listed for Credit 1. Credit 11, Visitability and Universal Design, requires new construction and retrofitting to ensure rights-of-way and/or travel routes in accordance with the American Disabilities Act Accessibility Guidelines (ADAAG).
All of ADA Solutions products are in full compliance with the American Disabilities Act Accessibility Guidelines (ADAAG), Public Right-of-Way (PROW) and California Title 24 Requirements.
