I am a bit confused with this section. Could someone help me?
According to 303.1.3 Associated with Group E occupancies (IBC 2015) - A room or space used for assembly purposed that is associated with a Group E occupancy is not considered a separate occupancy, which means it is considered an E occupancy. correct?
But I have worked on a high school project with an auditorium and performing center. These spaces are for high school students. We used occupancy "A" which conflicts with this section 303.1.3
I think we used A occupancy because it's more stringent than E occupancy. But if I see this kind of questions on ARE exams, which occupancy type should I chose? I would say "E".
If anyone could give me an advice, I would appreciate it. Thanks
