Book of Renovations. A Compilation of Drawings Depicting the Most Common Problems and Solutions to Renovating Existing Buildings and Facilities to Make Them Accessible to and Usable by People with Physical Disabilities.
Scott, Bruce H., Ed.
This booklet presents a compilation of ideas and illustrations intended to solve many accessibility problems of physically handicapped persons using older buildings and facilities which were built before legislation and regulations mandating accessibility for disabled persons were passed. The solutions pictured in the booklet are intended to meet the spirit of these laws and regulations by removing structural restraints and dealing with space limitations which affect the mobility of impaired individuals. Problem areas addressed include: accessible parking; accessible curbs; walkways and ramps; handrails; exterior approach; entrances; stairs; elevators; rest rooms; assembly areas; pay telephones; water fountains; interior spaces; and controls (such as light switches).
