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. When designing restrooms, some of each type of accessible fixture or feature and their installation location must meet accessibility requirements contained in the 2010 ADA Standards for Accessible Design. In addition, 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. We will review requirements for lavatories, accessories, toilet compartments and bathing facilities and how these can be applied to various types of restrooms.
- Identify how accessibility standards accommodate a diverse set of users and the general prescriptive requirements for accessible restroom design mandated by ADA.
- Describe requirements for accessible lavatories and restroom accessories.
- Describe requirements for toilet compartments of varying sizes and the accessories needed to complete their specification.
- Discuss requirements for accessible bathing facilities, whether individual shower compartments or combination tub/shower units.
