This is something I need to clarify before my exam on Monday. When finding the allowable area from Table 506.2, it is safe to assume that the number refers to an amount of area per story? Or do we always have to take that number and use one of the following calculations such as single-occupancy one-story, mixed-occupancy multi-story, etc. from the following sections (IBC 506.2.1-506.2.4)? And also, if we are not planning to use the frontage increase, do we still use those calculations in IBC 506.2.1-506.2.4 and if so, what would we use as the value for I (Increase due to frontage)?
Any help is greatly appreciated.
