    Multigenerational design, also known as transgenerational design, is an increasingly important aspect of universal design and a major contemporary trend mirroring the dramatic societal and economic changes of the last decades. In particular, public restrooms illustrate these multigenerational trends because they serve such diverse populations. Designing them successfully is a growing challenge for architects and facility owners. Take the course.

  • A Planning Guide for Accessible Restrooms

    1 LU AIA

    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. Take the course.
