2010 ADA Standards: Recreational Facilities
Instructor: Rodger Peck
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 2010 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 two hour video course covers the tenth chapter of the 2010 ADA Standards for Accessible Design, Recreation Facilities. The material for this course is presented by simple narration and power point video presentation, including on-site, real world video examples in various accessible buildings used by both the public and private sector.
After completing this course participants will be able to:
- Be able recognize how recreational facilities can, and should comply with ADA standards.
- Identify the ADA requirements for amusement parks, fitness equipment, golf facilities, play areas and swimming or boating facilities.
- Outline at least one design strategy based on ADA 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 the ADA Standards.
This course covers:
- Amusement Rides
- Recreational Boating Facilities
- Exercise Machines and Equipment
- Fishing Piers and Platforms
- Golf Facilities
- Miniature Golf Facilities
- Play Areas
- Swimming Pools, Wading Pools and Spas

Getting Decked: And Choosing How That Happens
Instructor: Paul Spite
Despite our need for shelter from elements, we have always sought opportunity to get back into or close to nature. A large part of our effort to reunite with nature has revolved around creating outdoor spaces adjoining our houses. There, we can get outside to enjoy favorable climate conditions, at whatever time we choose.
These outdoor spaces go by many names and have manifested as lanais, porches, screened enclosures, patios, etc. The most common outdoor spaces, constructed and attached to homes in western cultures, are outdoor decks, balconies and patios. For the purposes of this course, we will explore options available to build decks, balconies, and structures that are usually supported at some point above grade.
After completing this course participants will be able to:
- The evolving use of different materials to construct safe and usable outdoor surfaces
- Strengths and weaknesses of each available outdoor surface option
- New surfacing options that have been developed to overcome decking material limitations
- How surfacing materials are being combined to minimize weaknesses and maximize strengths
- Decking / Balconies made of wood, man-made materials, aluminum, concrete and Porcelain?
Successful Code Analysis: Occupancy Group B
Instructor: Wayde Hoppe
Most colleges spend very little time giving instruction to designers on how to comply with the building code. This may be because there used to be so many different types of building codes that it was impractical to offer instruction on every one of them. However, our country is moving closer to a nationwide standard. As we do, it is useful to know the basics on how to navigate your way through the building code. In this lesson we will look at the steps necessary to review a project against the building code, specifically looking at chapters 3, 5, 6, 7, and 9.
These chapters will allow us to identify the building use, the building construction type, the requirements for sprinkling, the requirements for frontage on clear area around the building, the height of the building and whether the building will be protected or not. We will review the requirements of chapters 3, 5, 6, 7 and 9 and we will discuss what options are available for a designer in his attempt to bring the desires of his client together with the limitations of the code. In order to get a clear understanding of this process, we will examine several sample projects. Our projects will all be a business use group. We will cover generic material about the building code and we will explore a specific use group and how the code applies to it.
After completing this course, you will be able to:
- Specify and identify the building use, the building construction type, the requirements for sprinkling, frontage on clear area around the building, the height of the building and whether the building will be protected or not.
- Understand and be able to comply with a specific use group and how the code applies to it.
- Be able to integrate design concepts with current codes and regulations.
- Translate the goals of the customer into a safe and cost-effective project that accounts for the limitations of the code.
