CASI Discussion Group
The purpose of the Bimonthly Discussion Group is to connect CASI members to discuss various aspects of the California Building Code (CBC) as well as state and federal accessibility standards.
Topic: California Building Code (CBC) 11B-247.1 Detectable Warnings
Date: Friday, May 19, 2023
Time: 1:00 - 2:30 pm PDT
Cost: FREE to CASI Members
In this session, we will discuss: CBC 11B-247.1 Detectable Warnings
In California, detectable warnings (truncated domes) seem to be everywhere. Why? The ADA Standards and California Building Code requirements for detectable warning surfaces differ. We will discuss where detectable warnings are required, their minimum technical specifications, requirements for installation, and where the code explicitly does not allow them.
This will NOT be a lecture so come prepared with your code book, your thinking cap, and a willingness to engage. This session we are going to be talking about some of the distinctive applications of the detectable warning tiles and their technicalities.
You will be divided into a breakout group randomly.
Each breakout group will have time to discuss a scenario, guided by a CASI facilitator. Then, we will reconvene as a whole and a representative from each breakout group will present the scenario, any discussions/debates, and the group interpretation.
Scenarios addressing the following aspects of code will be discussed:
- General application of CBC 11B 247.1 scoping requirements within facilities and on the right of way.
- Technical requirements of 11B-705 Detectable Warnings.
- All the areas where the code does not allow DWTs
One (1) continuing education credit is offered for a maximum of one-hour live attendance for DSA CASp certification or CAB credits, to be self-reported.
The Discussion Groups are available FREE to CASI members only. Registration is required.
Webinar information to join the discussion group will be sent out the day prior to the scheduled session date. The discussion groups will be recorded and archived in the member dashboard for those who cannot attend the live session.
