This updated and expanded guide to designing barrier-free facilities for the hospitality industry now covers the regulations and guidelines of the recently-enacted Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The book offers architects, interior designers and facilities managers the expertise they need to ensure that hotels, motels, restaurants, recreational and conference centres, as well as other facilities, meet ADA rules. The book provides information that should enable readers to do cost/benefit analyses of various design options, plus handy checklists and survey forms to help them assess what barriers need to be removed or modified. They should also learn how accessible design can lead to increased sales, greater customer satisfaction and prudent planning. This guide aims to cover everything, from entry lobbies to hotel corridors, from eating areas to guest-rooms and rest-rooms, from saunas to outdoor showers.
