1. The 3 hour fire separation requirement. I don't see how we would can achieve this. The floor system is conc over plywood over TJI's and I cannot find a 3-hr assembly for TJI's. I have never used spray-on fire protection, is that possible?
2. The building would have to be upgraded to type VA and since the building is sprinklered we could add an additional story to get the I-2.1 to the 2nd floor. But changing an existing building from a B to an A that is 75% occupied seems impossible to me
My partner asked if I would ask the group if there was a way that I was missing. If anyone sees a way that I am missing, please let me know. Thanks again everyone for your help.
