Questions answered this episode:
Roger– An architect asked me if about allowable slopes in angled parking stalls and whether the “triangular sections” at the head of the stall and the foot of the stall could have slopes > 1:48 and possibly have a column in these locations (See attached sketch) – it would seem that these areas are outside the boundaries described in the text of 11B-502.2, 11B-502.3 & 11B-502.4. How would you interpret this?
Ted – In California since July of 2016, the CBC has required yellow truncated domes be installed at curb ramps that enter a vehicular way. Our City Public Works Department is installing curb ramps on public sidewalks. Do you know what code standards govern Cities when they are installing curb ramps? Can it vary by City? Do you know if they are now required to use yellow truncated domes on public sidewalks? Thanks, guys, love the show.
Keith – Hi there, I have a 2016 CBC 11A question: I have an existing one-story care home building that is being proposed to be remodeled into 10 one-story apartment units. The units are proposed to have 3 units to a cluster with a 3-hour firewall between, then the last unit. This is a privately funded and owned building. First occupancy for this existing care home building was prior to March 13, 1991. Does section 1102A.2 Existing buildings apply to this? Thank you for your help on this.
Roger – I was approached by an applicant with a situation in a CA public accommodation where they want to add a second “non accessible” unisex bathroom and they referred to 11B-213.2 Exception 4 applies which states “Where multiple single user toilet rooms are clustered at a single location, 50 percent, but no fewer than one, of the single user toilet rooms for each use at each cluster shall comply with 11B-603 (Toilet and Bathing Rooms).” I think that they first must meet 11B-213.2 Exception 1 demonstrating that it is technically infeasible for single use restrooms to comply with 11B-603 to create a unisex bathroom. Then if this is true they can apply exception 4 – Your thoughts?
