Stepping Thru Toilet & Bathing Facilities – What Makes Them Accessible


Although toilet and bathing facilities have been around forever and the new ADA Standards for over a few years, we still have facilities that are not completely compliant. The major question is, why? Each component within a toilet or bathing room has a myriad of requirements needing to fit together like a puzzle. We will take an in-depth look at the technical and scoping requirements for Access and how it impacts toilet and bathing facility design, whether single-user, multi-user, or multiple single user, including the requirements for each of the individual components.


  • Understand overall scoping and spatial parameters for toilet and bathing facility
  • Review differences between between single and multi-user facilities
  • Learn technical requirements for the various elements typically found within a toilet or bathing room
  • Overview critical design factors for compliant design

typically 5 hours for the full seminar, 4 hours for abbreviated eliminating showers & bath tubs

“Thank you. I sat in during the seminar and it was fantastic. The sound was clear and you re-asked the questions so the webinar folks understood. The back and forth with the audience was lively but to the point. I just wanted to send a note and thank you again – your draw is huge, expertise on point, and I can’t thank you enough.”

– Eric Sifuentes, CASp, Nacht & Lewis

“I have always enjoyed and been highly interested in your publications and seminars over the years. Your publications are required reading by all my staff and are a given contribution to the success of our designs.”

– Craig R. Smith AIA, CRSA Architecture

“Janis is our go-to person whenever issues requiring interpretation of CBC/ADA arise. She is knowledgable, thorough and being an architect herself helps her better understand the challenges we face implementing the ever more detailed accessibility requirements.”

–Ron Bernhardt, AIA Retail Design Collaborative

I’ve found that the seminars and webinars that Stepping Thru Accessibility offers are the most comprehensive and of the highest quality available. I have always gained very useful and practical information on a wide range of accessibility topics with Janis’s seminars/webinars; highly recommended for anyone with an interest in accessibility.
