(31,000 sf) health club and 4 story hotel.

The code consulting provided specific guidance to the entire design team for rapid design, permitting and construction of this re-build effort of a major downtown facility. Time savings, reduced construction changes and continuous discussions with the building and fire authorities having jurisdiction occurred. Fire engineering analysis of the car park and hotel yielded an alternative solution for fire resistance rated construction requirements.
