Program Description

*Zoom* Sink Selection for Sustainability and Accessibility

This course reviews restroom design trends for commercial buildings by focusing on sink/lavatory system technology and the sustainability and accessibility trends surrounding them. The program will discuss the expanding role architects and designers play in accessible designs – striking a balance between hand washing needs and design flexibility. The program compares a variety of sink/lavatory systems and corresponding components. It discusses how each component can enhance the sustainability of hand washing functions while still providing style within a space. By narrowing the scope to restroom lavatory design, attention will be given to examine the appropriate ADA design criteria.
