Existing major warehouse, for storage of building insulation. Has had four warehouse extensions, each 70 plus thousand square feet.
Each new addition is separated by a CMU wall full height, fire doors, and each warehouse is fully sprinklered. The building is separated from remaining facility by CMU wall and fire doors.
We are looking to warehouse 5 addition, same scenario. Our warehouses are (and will continue to be) separated on three sides by at least 250, if not 300 feet to the property lines. No other structures are within this area.
Question is this: Does our addition (warehouse 5) have to be separated from exisitng warehouse 4 by a CMU (i.e. rated wall)? Seems our local Jurisdiction for this area does NOT think so.
