California Building Code: Division 2: Accessibility
Course #AIABLTI331
Architects Training Institute
A Division of Certified Training Institute
Provider #50119841


Course Description

The ADA is one of America’s most comprehensive pieces of civil rights legislation that prohibits discrimination and guarantees that people with disabilities have the same opportunities as everyone else to participate in the mainstream of American life — to enjoy employment opportunities, to purchase goods and services, and to participate in State and local government programs and services. The standards set minimum requirements – both scoping and technical – for newly designed and constructed, or altered state and local government facilities, public accommodations, and commercial facilities to be readily accessible to and usable by individuals with disabilities.

This five hour narrated course covers the second chapter of the ADA Standards for Accessible Design and includes the California modifications found in Division 2, Chapter 11B of the California Building Code including the most recent changes. While an individual designer may be able to use the ADA for personal or generic residential design, the California code should be used by registered design professionals and enforcement officials and applied when the project is for public use within the state of California.

After completing this course, participants will be able to:

  • Recognize how the overall philosophy of the Americans with Disabilities Act can, and does create an environment of opportunity and non-discrimination.
  • Be able recognize what facilities can, and should comply with Chapter 11B Accessibility of the California Building Code.
  • Outline at least one design strategy based on accessibility standards for the construction of either a public or private building.
  • Summarize the options available to the design or building professional when designing a facility per the requirements of Chapter 11B.

ACOUSTICAL DESIGN IN MODERN ARCHITECTURE


COURSE SYLLABUS

Course Description

Unwanted sound impacts and affects inhabitants of our created spaces. If it not already, controlling noise will quickly become a mandated concern for designers. Attesting to increasing regulatory focus on noise, there is a recent proliferation of standards, guidelines, and codes regarding acoustics.

Very soon, many of these guidelines will no longer be mere suggestions. Most concerns covered in these standards can be addressed with a basic understanding on how sound travels and is reflected, blocked, absorbed, or transmitted by materials and assemblies chosen in designing envelopes. 

Acoustic design is best addressed in an incremental fashion. This course was written to do just that. Fundamentals are first covered, including basic principles regarding sound, how its energy moves through matter, how its path and intensity can be altered, and how success in the manipulation of sound is measured. Known design strategies are discussed for controlling sound moving; from exterior to interior spaces, from interior spaces to adjacent spaces, within interior spaces, through structural components, and through building systems. Design considerations are outlined for numerous common building functions. Finally, acoustic codes and guidelines in existence now, are listed for consideration.

After completing this course  participants will be able to:

  • Design objectives and recommended best practices for building types where poor acoustics directly impact productivity and health of the users.
  • Determine sources of noise that negatively impact users of built environments, generated both outside and from within buildings, including both air borne and structure borne sounds.
  • Outline basic design practices for effectively controlling; sound transfer between exterior and interior spaces, noise transfer from interior space to adjacent spaces, and the reverberation of sound generated within spaces.
  • Provide an overview of regulations and guidelines that either are, or may become law underscoring a need for competency in acoustic design, before legislatures make designing for noise control mandatory.

SUCCESSFUL RENOVATIONS AND ADDITIONS


This course is designed to address the needs of both designers and builders. The topics that will be covered include pre-design, building design, structural concerns, making a watertight envelope, code issues, and construction details. Each of these topics will be addressed in the light of both renovation and addition projects. Real-life stories will relay information that will help any designer to successfully navigate through the challenges of this very specific type of building design. 

This course will highlight the right questions, demonstrate how to investigate the important conditions and bring attention to the critical issues. Through the many following examples, this course will offer instruction on how to approach a renovation or addition project with justified confidence.   

After completing this course, participants will be able to:

  • Be able to translate the requests of the client into a realistic, safe, and cost-effective project.
  • Gain confidence in the ability to specify, and identify any code related issues or requirements in order to facilitate proper construction.
  • Demonstrate how to investigate the important conditions and bring attention to critical issues.
  • Identify and integrate strategies that involve existing conditions, building design, structural concerns, and common issues.

Successful Building Design


 

COURSE SYLLABUS

Course Description

Developers of commercial, industrial and institutional buildings are driven by return on investment. Today’s building owners are savvy and they seek to balance the initial cost with the payback. Functionality, aesthetics, and methods of code compliance are each guided by financial investment and return. In this course, you will learn, from the foundation to the roof, from the appearance to the operation, from construction to maintenance, tried and proven methods for analyzing design decisions that will lead you to a greater reputation as a designer.

Most architects are familiar with the design process and are usually comfortable with at least one or more of the steps. However, what we learn in school needs to be coupled with the requirements of today’s many codes and regulations, the changes in material development, our client’s demand for a return on investment and the realities of construction budgets.

After completing this course, participants will be able to:

  • Be able to integrate design concepts with current codes and regulations.
  • Translate the intentions and goals of the customer into a safe and cost effective project.
  • Utilize current materials and goods to ensure proper construction practices.
  • Recognize the importance of meeting the client’s demand for return on investment.

Drier By Design – Designing to Keep Water Out


COURSE SYLLABUS

Course Description

With erosion paths cut into solid rock as solid evidence, water in various forms contains immense power to eat away or destroy whatever is in its path. Whether it takes a year, two hundred or ten thousand, without intervention, water can and will destroy our man-made structures. Once a problem develops that opens a pathway for intrusion, one rainy season can render a building unsuitable for human use.

We have the knowledge and tools to combat such destruction of our structures. We implement counterattacks in the design stage, during construction, and afterwards with proactive maintenance, but the battle against water begins in the design phase.

Moisture resistance principles and methods are discussed in a systematic fashion, as in one building system at a time. Fundamentals are first covered, including basic principles of water behavior and the multiple paths it takes while invading buildings. A thorough knowledge of how destruction begins and escalates drives the known design principles and material decisions used to stop such migration. Practical solutions are then discussed in detail.

The discussion is needed. The physical price tag for both our structures and their occupants is too high to allow water free entry into our occupied spaces.

This course teaches the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • A basic understanding of how water moves, migrates, and behaves
  • Typical sources of excess moisture in our built environments
  • Proactive prevention of unwanted moisture through planning and design
  • Methods used during construction to prevent the intrusion of water
  • Post-construction prevention of leakage by building envelope inspection
  • Common points of failure through which water can gain entrance
  • Prevention of water intrusion through control of condensation
