I'm probably doing this completely wrong, but I don't know what I'm doing wrong if so..
I'm using a 1-Story, B-Occupancy, Type V-B as an example.. Just seems really weird going from 9,000 SF allowable area per story to 38,250 SF per story if adding an automatic sprinkler system... ??
I'm using the 25% example that is given in the Building Codes Illustrated just for the sake of this example.
Aa = 9,000 + (9,000 x 25%) + (9,000 x 3)
Aa = 38,250
I haven't seen anyone ask this on any post (or I've missed it) so I really feel like I'm doing it wrong.
