A Planning Guide for Accessible Restrooms

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) set the minimum requirements for newly designed and constructed or altered state and local government facilities, public accommodations and commercial facilities to be readily accessible to and usable by individuals with disabilities.
Many projects must also follow the provisions of the 2009 revision of ANSI Standard ICC A117.1, Accessible and Usable Buildings and Facilities.
This course will identify the benefits of accessibility standards and the prescriptive requirements for accessible restrooms set by the ADA as well as different states’ building codes.


Charrette: Universal Design Solutions for Accessible Public Restrooms

Interactive, concurrent Charrette sessions create universal design solutions for different types of accessible public restrooms.
Design solutions will:
- Produce functional, creative, universal, accessible designs
- Meet the diverse needs of restroom patrons
- Result in exceptional restroom designs
- Enhance market value of properties


Specifying Code-Compliant Toilet Partitions

This course will provide up-to-date information relative to selecting and specifying code-compliant toilet partitions for commercial restrooms.  Fire and accessibility codes will be discussed, as will guidelines for writing toilet compartment specifications.
