  1. Inclusive Design Guidelines: New York City  2nd Edition (Cover Image)

    Inclusive Design Guidelines: New York City 2nd Edition

    The Inclusive Design Guidelines, New York City, Second Edition confirms that it is a living document and that Inclusive Design is dynamic. The premise of the book holds true: “The IDG is voluntary technical guidance helping designers produce multisensory enhanced environments that accommodate a wide range of physical and mental abilities for people of all ages.” Adoption of the ICC A117.1 standard has proven to be correct because of its relevant content, structure, numbering system and harmonization with the New York City Building Code, the 2010 ADA Standards, and other legal requirements. Expansion and refinements of this edition comprise 25% new content; 15% updates, and two hundred forty (240) additional figures.

  2. ICC A117.1-2009 Accessible and Usable Buildings and Facilities

    ICC A117.1-2009 Accessible and Usable Buildings and Facilities

    The specifications in this standard make sites, facilities, buildings and elements accessible to and usable by people with such physical disabilities as the inability to walk, difficulty walking, reliance on walking aids, blindness and visual impairment, deafness and hearing impairment, in coordination, reaching and manipulation disabilities, lack of stamina, difficulty interpreting and reacting to sensory information, and extremes of physical size. The intent of this standard is to allow a person with physical disability to independently get to, enter, and use a site, facility, building, or element.

    Includes:

    • Coordination of requirements for the various types of dwelling units
    • Technical requirements for Type C (Visitable) Units added
    • Variable Message Signs (i.e., gate information in train stations and airports)
    • Better consistency of sign requirements regarding when raised characters and Braille are required
    • Location of toilet paper dispenser (more design options, recessed fixtures addressed, single point of measurement, etc.)
    • New chapter for a variety of types of recreational facilities

    These new recreational criteria are intended to provide a level of coordination between the accessible provisions of this standard and the revised Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA/ABA AG).

    This is a must have reference for facility professionals, building owners, architects, designers, and code officials that want to stay up to date with the requirements of this Accessibility Standard.

  5. 2009 International Energy Conservation Code and ANSI/ASHRAE/IESNA Standard 90.1-2007

    2009 International Energy Conservation Code and ANSI/ASHRAE/IESNA Standard 90.1-2007

    The publication of the 2009 International Energy Conservation Code and ANSI/ASHRAE/IESNA Standard 90.1-2007 - Energy Standard for Buildings Except Low-Rise Residential Buildings, in one book is a positive step forward in the efforts of the International Code Council® (ICC®) and the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) to increase the awareness about and application of energy-efficient buildings.

    This publication came about as a direct result of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA), passed in February 2009 as one of the first priorities of the new U.S. Presidential Administration and the U.S. Congress. ARRA was designed to both stimulate economic recovery, by providing stimulus funding to various sectors of the economy and to accomplish policy goals on which there was broad consensus, such as increasing energy efficiency.

    Both ICC and ASHRAE are proud of the processes they administer to produce the International Energy Conservation Code and ANSI/ASHRAE/IESNA Standard 90.1. They bring together experts, government officials from all levels, and industry representatives who manufacture, service and maintain the systems and products that go into energy-efficient buildings. These open and transparent processes produce documents that are respected and usable by all communities.

    These two documents are recognized in the ARRA as the benchmarks for the energy efficiency of residential and commercial buildings, respectively. Because they address the same issues and because both may overlap in their coverage of building systems and designs, it makes sense to publish these two documents together -for the benefit of building designers, engineers, and building code compliance personnel. In some cases, having both documents in one place will make it easier to choose between different design options. In all cases, this dual edition will make it easier to ensure that new and renovated buildings are built in compliance with the latest references available, in compliance with local requirements, and with the goal of ARRA to achieve 90% compliance with these target codes in all 50 states by 2017.
