ADA Shower

Doing an ADA shower on new construction. Would like it to be a no step transition. Floor will be 11-7/8" I-joists 16" on center with 3/4 Subfloor. Shower will be a 4x5. What is the best way to set up the framing for this situation?

That depends.

Have you chosen a proprietary waterproofing system?

Frame the floor with 2”x8” recessed a minimum of 2” below the standard framing.

Was thinking of using Wedi or Rodkat systems. I was going to up the sheeting to 7/8 and cut the flooring out and block the BCI's for the shower pan section

If you're going with a foam pan why not just get the Ligno pan or have Rod make you a similar one? Then you can use the Rapid Recess system and have everything flush out.
