All four buildings are combined into one.
the subcode is enacted,
No other waivers are allowed (i.e. NFPA exit discharge separation requirements are still in effect)
The subcode project team will be meeting on Wednesday, Jan. 16th, at 7:00 PM, at CC's coffee at 2917 Magazine Street (between sixth and seventh streets, near sucre). We'll be discussing the various things we've found while reasearching so far, as well as where to go for next week.
