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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
