AIA/CES (HSW) Learning Units: 1.25 Hours
This course complies with California licensure requirements for accessibility (SB 1608 and California Business and Professions Code Section 5600.05) and provides valuable information about accessibility requirements applicable in most states.
In this 75-minute course, two California architects present case studies about innovative accessibility solutions to challenging sites.
Anne Cotter, AIA, LEED AP of ZGF showcases how the design team seamlessly integrated accessibility throughout the California Air Resources Board (CARB) Southern California Headquarters. The design spans a 22-foot grade difference on the site, sloping entries and courtyard, tiered outdoor seating and gentle walkways that do not require handrails.
Martha L. Bell, FAIA, LEED AP BD+C of HED then presents two case studies from recent designs at Saddleback College. The Advanced Technology and Applied Sciences Facility features winding accessible ramps integrated into outdoor gardens and special vehicular and pedestrian access points. And the 75,000 SF Gateway Building, comprised of offices and classrooms, serves as an accessible pathway from the upper to the lower campus.
