  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.
