STATE ARCHITECT BEGINS WORK ON ADULT CHANGING FACILITIES

In response to legislation passed in 2015, the Division of the State Architect (DSA) has put together a working group to craft building standards for adult changing facilities in “commercial places of public entertainment”.  Specifically, AB 662 (Bonilla) requires a commercial place of public amusement with a daily occupancy greater than 2,500 people to have at least one adult changing table located in an enclosed bathroom.  The statute defines “commercial place of public amusement” as an auditorium, convention center, cultural complex, exhibition hall, permanent amusement park, sports arena, or theatre or movie house having a maximum occupancy greater than 2,500 people.   Earlier this week, DSA conducted the second of six planned working group meetings that will focus on various issues which must be addressed prior to DSA proceeding with the adoption of building standards that must take effect on January 1, 2020.  CBPA and BOMA have representatives on this working group.
