Making Facilities Accessible to the Physically Handicapped.
State Univ. Construction Fund, Albany, NY.
Guidelines on performance criteria for the State University of New York consider two main types of handicapped: the ambulant and semi-ambulant, including some physically handicapped, the visually and aurally handicapped, and persons with cardiac conditions; and persons confined to wheel chairs. The handicapped and planning for them are discussed. Specifications are detailed for the following aspects of exterior design: entrances, ramps, stairs, doors, walks, intersections, gratings and manholes, parking, and bus service. Interior design criteria cited are for general university facilities, restrooms, bedrooms, stairs, elevators, doors, conveniences, and fire protection. Persons involved in or contributing to the study are named, and 19 references are listed. (JD)
