Plan Reading Workshop

Why Learn Plan Reading?

People with disabilities have invaluable insights into design that works for everyone.

It is a vibrant way to engage in and shape your community.

Mistakes are less costly the earlier they are found and much less costly before construction.

Once you learn the basics, you can apply your knowledge to any building in the US.
