Stepping Thru Accessible Details is a compilation of over 100 architectural details and specifications based on the 2010 ADA with a color-coded overlay of the 2010 California Building Codes. The details include sourcing information from both the ADA and the CBC. Since each detail and specification is color-coded for portions that are just within California it is a valuable resource for out-of-state projects as well.

Who is this book meant for? Architects, landscape architects, interior designers, civil engineers, facility managers, plan checkers, building inspectors and anyone else involved in the built commercial environment. A CD is included in the book.

Advance Reviews

Probably the most comprehensive and thorough compilation of accessibility information I have encountered in my career as both a building inspector and an accessibility instructor.

Janis Kent’s book incorporating the new 2010 ADA Guidelines and the latest version of California’s accessibility codes looks to me as if it is going to be an essential companion to those who are involved with access to the built environment. The organization of the material, along with the pages of resources for each section, is extremely well thought-out. My congratulations, Janis, and thanks for providing such a valuable resource.

Ms Kent’s new book is a tremendous asset to those involved in Accessibility in the building industry. It is a wonderful compendium of information assimilating the 2010 ADA with the 2010 CBC including references to all of the source material used in the creation of her details. While she leans this book towards projects located in California, because she color codes items that are California only, it would be a valuable resource for projects elsewhere. The details are actually more relevant than the Architectural Graphic Standards, in my opinion, due to the actual integration of accessible solutions where code compliance matters. I highly recommend this reference book for all who review and make decisions for buildings, sites, and facilities!
