I have never encountered such an argument. If there's a rational, plausible explanation for how a floor drain would make a safety shower take too much space and be ADA non-compliant, I'd like to hear it.

Subject: [DCHAS-L] Safety Showers, Drains and ADA Compliance
We're working with architects right now to plan out chem labs for a new science building. We've asked for drains under the safety showers and were told that wouldn't be possible because in order to be ADA compliant and have drains, the safety showers would take up too much space- has anyone encountered such an argument?
(Note, we're extremely constrained on space due to some very complicated politics I won't go into here, so making the labs bigger is not an option.)
