This caught me off guard when we renovated our most recent space too, I think since our past buildings were mixed-use and this was our first purely commercial building.
The ADA laws are around the counter height, not the dishwasher itself. But because the ADA counter height is a bit lower than the “normal” residential height, regular dishwashers just won’t fit.
I had done a lot of research on quiet + efficient dishwashers for my home a few years ago and found a Bosch series that I really liked…and it turns out they have an ADA compatible version. You can find the model/specs here: https://www.ajmadison.com/cgi-bin/ajmadison/SGE68U55UC.html
The selection of ADA height washers is smaller, but again the internals aren’t really any different. Just the height so they can fit under the counter.
The #1 mistake in community building is doing it by yourself.

When I look for ADA dishwashers it seems that lots of residential dishwashers list ADA compatibility. ADA just seems to be about control accesibility.
But looking here: https://www.consolidatedfoodservice.com/guide/commercial-vs-residential-dishwashers-guide the implication is that commercial washers operate at higher temperatures and sanitize, whereas residential dishwashers do not.
Did the building specify exactly what they meant by “commercial”? Or did they just mean, “not cheap”?
The dishwashers I’ve seen (and used) in bars and restaurants are not something I’ve ever seen in an office setting.

I am thinking buy a dishwasher in my co-working space, my space is in 7th floor of a office building. I was told I need to get a commercial dishwasher because this is the regulatory department’s requirement by a shopper, but my dishwasher will only be used to wash the mugs, so I am little concerned, does anyone know this? or could anyone had the same experience? I’d appreciated any advices, thanks!
