3 Online Guidance board.gov/ada aba/guide.htm 5 New Construction Required access: All public and common use toilet rooms and bathrooms (portable units 5% min.) 6 3

4 New Construction Unisex restrooms cannot substitute for access to provided multi user rooms (except in certain alterations) 7 Unisex Restrooms Unisex or family restrooms in addition to accessible multi user restrooms benefit many users (required by some building codes for certain ti occupancies) 8 4

5 Private Toilet Rooms Adaptable access permitted private (not common) use single occupant accessed only through private office (clarified in the new ADA ABA standards) 9 Private Toilet Rooms Adaptability allows: later provision of grab bars (reinforcement/ blocking) alternative toilet seat & lavatory heights removable base cabinetry at lavs door swing into fixture clearances (where swing can be reversed) 10 5

6 Toilet Rooms in Series New ADA ABA standards: allow access to at least 50% of single user toilet rooms clustered at one location that serve same users (Original ADAAG requires access to all) 11 Clustered Toilet Rooms Example: medical office suite 12 6

7 Alterations Standards apply based on: planned scope of work technical feasibility primary function areas/ path of travel 13 Alterations Limited alterations: standards apply element by element Alteration of room/space: standards apply fully to the space Minimum number: all public and common use affected by an alteration 14 7

8 Alterations Technical Infeasibility = Existing physical/site constraints that prohibit compliance Example: removing fixture to create accessible stall conflicts with plumbing code 15 Alterations Space limitations and technical infeasibility 16 8

9 Alterations Where renovation = more extensive, technical infeasibility = less likely 17 Alterations Technical Infeasibility: case by case determination based on existing constraints/ conditions and scope of work compliance required to the maximum extent feasible 18 9

10 Alterations Additional requirements for alterations to areas containing a primary function (major activity intended for facility) Examples: dining room in restaurant customer lobby of bank meeting rooms of conference center 19 Alterations Alterations to primary function areas require accessible path of travel : accessible route (from site arrival points, parking, building entrances) restrooms phones drinking fountains 20 10

11 Alterations Example of path of travel 21 Alterations Path of travel: Compliance required except where disproportionate to the project cost (more than 20%) 22 11
