Download Pre-built Revit Accessible Toilet Room Sample Model

Posted by Daniel Hughes on May 22, 2018 12:44:24 PM

 

As firms build their Revit \ BIM project library with pre-built Building Product Manufacturer (BPM) models, the next step in efficiency is to pre-build common room types with those models.

This provides a learning process for less experienced design staff to learn accessible, ADA and ANSI accessible design rules and guidelines.

Pre-built Revit rooms with installed common Revit furniture, fixture and equipment models; expedite the construction modeling and documentation process.

Here is an example of a single occupancy accessible toilet room; that utilizes the Bradley Verge with WashBar Technology 3-in-1 touchless handwashing lavatory; which is ADA compliant.

4 Bradley Revit Lavatories for ADA Compliant Toilet Room Renovations

Posted by Daniel Hughes on May 13, 2016 3:30:00 PM

Over the last month, Revit software and the Bradley Product Revit library proved to quickly & efficiently layout a large number of ADA compliant Toilet-Locker Rooms.

- 4 Hours | 2D AutoCAD to Visually Data-Rich Revit Documentation -

Three (3) separate clients with over 250 locations scheduled for renovation; received plans, elevations & sections, 3D interior perspective views, rendered images and bill of materials for costing their projects.

Four (4) Bradley lavatory decks continuously stood out as the 'Go-To' ADA accessible handwashing systems for these toilet room renovations.

    

Renovating existing toilet rooms to meet ADA requirements can be costly, time consuming, disruptive and in some cases almost impossible. The later, may require renovating and creating a much larger footprint and/or completely relocating the toilet room.

Here are the four (4) Bradley space-saving, prefabricated ADA lavatory design solutions we used for these projects. They are listed in the order that designers selected them for their projects. They helped designers accommodate the 'unknowns' for toilet room renovation projects; while meeting the ADA criteria.

1) Bradley features 2 types of space-saving 3-in-one touchless handwashing systems with the Bradley Advocate & Verge. The Bradley Advocate AV-Series modular 3-in-1, touchless handwashing system provides the smallest footprint for a complete hand washing (water, soap, dryer). Download Advocate AV-Series Revit Models

The Bradley Verge® Lavatory System with WashBar™ Technology and the respective Revit Verge Model Library are located in the Bradley Revit Library. (1,000 Revit Families)

 The Verge® with exclusive WashBar™ technology is the 2nd all-in-one handwashing system.

The integrated design of the Verge basin in Evero® natural quartz material and clean + rinse + dry functionality housed in the new single piece WashBar create an attractive intuitive space for handwashing. The Verge with the patented WashBar provides a completely touchless handwashing experience in a sleek and engaging design.

 

2) The Bradley Verge L-Series Lavatory System has less depth than other Bradley Lavatory systems. This lavatory also meets the ANSI Enhanced Reach range. Download Verge L-Series Revit Models

 

3) The Bradley ELX-Express Lavatory System is modular but has a shorter deck. For example, a 2-station ELX is 55" long, compared to the Verge L-Series, which is 60" long.  Download ELX Revit Models

 

4) The patented, multi-height Bradley Frequency Lavatory System comfortably provides hand-washing access for adults, children, and those with disabilities. 

The convex (higher) station provides a more ergonomically correct position for able-bodied users while the concave (lower) stations can be mounted to meet ADA or TAS guidelines. Download Frequency Revit Models

Bradley prefabricated lavatory systems can assist with minimizing the interior demolition costs; while providing labor savings with an "out-of-the-box & install" ADA compliant hand washing system. This proves to be ideal for organizations' that have multiple renovation projects; with a multitude unknown floor plan conditions.

US Accessibility Board | New ADA \ ABA Compliance Standards Videos

Posted by Daniel Hughes on Jul 23, 2014 8:59:56 AM

The United States Access Board Website continues to publish new video content to better describe the ADA \ ABA Codes & Compliance Standards.

If "a picture is worth a thousand words" -- a video (animation) may save a thousands of words to describe an accessibility code and compliance standard.

Bradley integrates accessibility standards into our products and Revit (BIM) Model Library --as Revit Family Types to assist with various accessibility installation heights.

As a product, the Bradley Verge VLD-Series Natural Quartz Lavatory System is a potential solution for fulfilling the 'Enhanced Reach Accessibility Requirement'.

The 2009 ICC/ANSI Standards require that soap dispenser controls and faucets that serve certain accessible lavatories – larger restrooms determined by scoping such as IBC as to require an enhanced reach range – need to be installed with a reach depth of 11 inches (280mm) maximum.

Bradley incorporates "Clearance Boxes" into our Revit models; where they may assist with interference or clash detection for maintaining ADA installation heights and keeping maintenance accessibility areas clear for a product.

My thanks to Glenna Antrim, International Account Manager (Bradley) for sharing the details of Accessibility Boards' new video content.

Bradley Corporation is the sole sponsor for a unique learning event at the 2013 AIA Wisconsin Convention.

The AIA Wisconsin Convention Committee worked with the AIA Wisconsin Emerging Professionals Committee to bring a special program to the 2013 AIA Wisconsin Convention.

This Emerging Professional Activity, titled “ADA Compliance Checklist,” requires Architectural Interns to create an ADA Compliance checklist to address ADA design issues in their current and future projects. (Activity details are available online, page 111)

Emerging Professionals Companion (EPC) Activity:

ADA Compliance Checklist scheduled from 11:30 am – 3:00 pm on Wednesday, May 8th, in conjunction with the 2013 AIA Wisconsin Convention.

The program will be moderated by Andy Malanowski, AIA, | Eppstein Uhen Architects, Inc. - Milwaukee.

AIAW committee has been recruiting additional architects to assist in the seminar room to answer questions and offer suggestions as interns investigate ADA requirements. We are encouraging these mentors to use case studies to illustrate solutions for ADA design issues.

Dale Gallman, Bradley Corporation Codes Compliance Manager will be assisting attendees throughout Andy's class presentation.
