A Practical Guide to 2010 ADA-Compliant Restroom Design

In March of 2012 the 2010 ADA Standards for Accessible Design, also referred to as the 2010 ADA Standard, became the new, legally enforceable requirement for ensuring a space is readily accessible to and usable by individuals with disabilities. This course will inform design professionals about the accessible elements of a multi-user toilet room. Designers will learn about toilet room compliance with applicable accessibility codes and regulations. Appropriate materials for toilet room use and issues related to usability, abuse, warranty, LEED and how this can improve occupant comfort, health, and ease of use will be reviewed.
