In this round table discussion, we will start with a presentation on the recent history of ADUs since SB 1069 & SB 229 aka Wieckowski was passed in 2017 which led to the recent increase in these types of structures. After the presentation, the moderated round table discussion will delve into the experiences, tips and tricks of creating ADUs for clients. Participants are expected to actively participate in the discussion. 

Free! Bring your lunch and find out more about ADUs.

Learning Objectives:

  • Discuss how local municipalities are implementing to SD1069, SB229 and other ammendments to Wieckowski so that participants can design compliant ADUs.
  • Inspire architects and designers to create affordable well-designed ADUs.
