We started down that road and changed direction. (I looked for federal requirements (ADAAG) but couldn't find any. Also different schools and colleges 'own' different rooms in the same building so a set number per building wouldn't work. Then there's different types of learning spaces from auditoriums to classrooms to labs) Instead we made a number of centrally scheduled learning spaces accessible and now require that all new learning spaces be accessible. (We have a facilities representative on our committee.)
Our guidelines are here: http://accessibility.temple.edu/how-materials/accessible-computer-labs-and-learning-spaces
We worked with Robert Hogg ( http://www.rthogg.com/ )to make accessible podiums.

Subject: [Athen] podiums
Does anyone have a policy concerning how many classrooms in a building need to be accessible for the faculty? We are buying podiums that house smart classrooms and they are quite expensive. To get some that are adjustable for wheelchair users would be a substantial added expense. Do you know if there are any specifics regarding this in the law? Thanks for all your assistance.
