This a new Type for me, and I hear a lot about Type III or Type III modified construction being employed for these type of buildings. As I look at the code, I am wondering why this wouldn't just be a Type IIB building. Are there advantages to pursuing Type IIIB vs. Type IIB, things I am missing?
Type II allows for non-rated, non-combustible exterior if adequately away from property line, Type III requires 2 hours. Just seems like IIB is the best calssification.
