Facility Access

One of DCAB’s primary services is to review and provide recommendations on all State and County plans and specifications for buildings, facilities, and sites, as required under Hawaii Law H.R.S. 103-50, in order to ensure that they are designed and constructed to be accessible to persons with disabilities.

Facility Access Review Forms

These forms are to be used by state and county agencies and their respective design consultants when submitting plans and specifications to DCAB for review under Hawaii Law H.R.S. 103-50.
