Case Study Question:
In order to increase property revenues, the client decides to rent the Gallery at the corner of the ground floor to an accounting firm. The Programmable Space in the basement will be used as storage. The architect will need to accommodate the change in occupancy for the former Gallery space by making sure its fire separation ratings meet the minimum code requirements. What should the architect specify for the former Gallery space?➡️ The correct answer is 1 hour rated wall, ceiling, and floors.
My question ➡️ The scenario doesn't mention the building has sprinkler system. How can we tell if we need 1hr rated or 2 hr rated?
