EVENT THEME

Detailing Interiors

In some ways, architectural projects succeed or fail based upon how well material and system junctions are negotiated. This is just as true for interior projects as it is for entire buildings. How does the wall meet the floor? How does one ceiling system transition to another? How are mechanical registers handled? When these small junctures are deftly detailed the effects ripple out across the entire project, so it pays to know how manufacturers’ systems work so you can successfully bring them together. In this accredited workshop, experts will lead tutorials on a variety of interior detailing conditions.

Agenda

  • Credit type: 1.0 AIA HSW
  • Provider: Infinity Drain

Barrier-free bathrooms, a recognized design trend, was first developed to accommodate the growing interest in aging-in-place spurred by Baby Boomers. Barrier-free showers are now considered the next level in beautiful, luxurious interiors. This course will take a closer look at the benefits that linear drains can bring to a bathroom, and a few important best practices that will help avoid some of the challenges that can arise during construction to achieve a barrier-free design.

Learning Objectives

  • Describe the connection between barrier-free showers and the design objectives of aging in place or living in place.
  • Explain how barrier-free shower spaces comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) design standards.
  • Identify the basic elements and considerations for incorporating this more accessible barrier-free shower into a new construction or renovation project.
  • Specify the right linear drain system for any given project.
