Shelburne Visitors Accessibility Study and Specifications
Jablonski De Vriese Architects has evaluated the accessibility issues at the Visitor Center and makes the following observations:
1. The doors to the accessible toilet rooms currently swing into the room and are not in compliance with MAAB 521 CMR and need to swing out. The fixtures and grab bars are in compliance.
2. There is a urinal in the men’s toilet room that is opposite the water closet and encroaches on the code required clear area in front of the water closet. The urinal must be removed or relocated.
3. Braille signage is needed at the building entrance and at the bathrooms.
Remedial Solutions:
1. Reinstall existing wood panel doors on the outside of existing wood door frames swing so that they swing out. Swap doors so that lock and hinges will be in the correct orientation.
2. Build a recessed alcove in the men’s toilet room and relocate the urinal so that it is out of the required clear area in front of the water closet. It was stated that the Visitor Center staff felt that it would be desirable to keep the urinal if possible.
Scope of Work:
1. Relocate and reinstall existing wood panel doors. Patch hinge and strike mortises on the inside of the door frames. Refinish frames.
2. Remove urinal and demolish approximately 3’ of the north wall of the men’s room. Reframe the wall to create a 1’-6”x 3’-0” recess for relocating the urinal.
3. Reconfigure drain, water supply and vent piping for relocation of the urinal.
4. Install and finish gypsum drywall inside and outside of the new urinal. Add fiberglass batt acoustical insulation in the new wall.
5. Extend suspended acoustical ceiling into new alcove. Tile and grid to match existing.
6. Install new quarry tile and base to match existing. Clean existing tile floor and base.
7. Reinstall urinal.
8. Clean existing toilet room ceiling and walls and prep for painting. Repaint to match existing colors. (Men and Women toilet rooms)
9. Patch and paint exterior wall around toilet rooms.
10. Relocate existing electrical receptacle and light switch in area of new alcove. (By Town).
11. Install Braille signage at the building entrance and bathrooms.
