Date: Tuesday, February 28, 2023; 12:30pm-2:00pm
Cost: $10 (PENNBOC Members Only)
Instructors: Walt Schneider, CRCA; and, Mike Simonson, City of Bethlehem
Description: With the 2021 codes, the International Code Council has approved changes to restroom single stall facilities as well as allow for multi-stall gender-neutral facilities. How Pennsylvania incorporates these changes when it reviews and adopts the 2021 I-Codes remains to be seen. In the meantime, many jurisdictions across the Commonwealth are currently responding to building requests to implement gender neutral public bathrooms – often from academic institutions. This seminar intends to highlight the larger policy implications that building code officials should be aware of regarding gender-neutral facilities. Instructors will present sample use cases. Group discussion & dialogue will be encouraged.
