Building Code

The allowable area of a single-occupancy building with no more than one story above grade plane shall be determined in accordance with Equation 5-1:

Aa = At + (NS x If)  (Equation 5-1)


where:

Aa = Allowable area (square feet).
At = Tabular allowable area factor (NS, S1, or S13R value, as applicable) in accordance with Table 506.2.
NS = Tabular allowable area factor in accordance with Table 506.2 for nonsprinklered building (regardless of whether the building is sprinklered).
If = Area factor increase due to frontage (percent) as calculated in accordance with Section 506.3.



This section is considered: Passed

NOTE: The declared building occupancy of B differs from the single occupancy found in the model. Using Occupancy A-4 for the analysis.
The building configuration for the Table 506.2 lookup is as follows:
  • Occupancy - A-4,
  • Sprinkler Value - None,
  • Construction Type - Type V-B
The allowable area for the single occupancy, one-story building is as follows:
Aa = At + (NS * If)  (Equation 5-1)


where:
Aa = 6000.00 sqft
At = 6000.00 sqft
NS = 6000.00 sqft
If = 0.00%

Section 506.2.2 - Mixed-occupancy, one-story buildings

Building Code

The allowable area of a mixed-occupancy building with no more than one story above grade plane shall be determined in accordance with the applicable provisions of Section 508.1 based on Equation 5-1 for each applicable occupancy.


This section is considered: Not Applicable

This section only applies if the building is single story and mixed occupancies. However, this building has:

Section 506.2.3 - Single-occupancy, multistory buildings

Building Code

The allowable area of a single-occupancy building with more than one story above grade plane shall be determined in accordance with Equation 5-2:

Aa = [At + (NS x If)] x Sa  (Equation 5-2)

This section is considered: Not Applicable

Since the building does not contain H-2 or H-3 occupancies, this section does not apply.

Section 506.3 - Frontage increase

Building Code

Every building shall adjoin or have access to a public way to receive an area factor increase based on frontage. Area factor increase shall be determined in accordance with Sections 506.3.1 through 506.3.3.


This section is considered: Passed

Please refer to Section 506.3.1 through Section 506.3.3 for calculations involving the area factor increase.



Section 506.3.1 - Minimum percentage of perimeter

Building Code

To qualify for an area factor increase based on frontage, a building shall have not less than 25 percent of its perimeter on a public way or open space. Such open space shall be either on the same lot or dedicated for public use and shall be accessed from a street or approved fire lane.


This section is considered: Passed

The percentage of perimeter that a building has on a public way or open space is calculated as follows:

Percentage of Perimeter = F / P

where:
F = Portion of building perimeter that is adjacent to a public way or open space with a minimum of 20.00 ft
P = Total building perimeter

F = 49.40 ft
P = 209.80 ft
Percentage of Perimeter = 24.00 %

Since the percentage is not greater than 25 %, the building does not qualify for an area factor increase based on frontage. See Section 506.3.3 for the detailed calculation.



Section 506.3.2 - Minimum frontage distance

Building Code

To qualify for an area factor increase based on frontage, the public way or open space adjacent to the building perimeter shall have a minimum distance (W) of 20 feet (6096 mm) measured at right angles from the building face to any of the following:

1. The closest interior lot line.

2. The entire width of a street, alley or public way.

3. The exterior face of an adjacent building on the same property.

Where the value of W is greater than 30 feet (9144 mm), a value of 30 feet (9144 mm) shall be used in calculating the building area increase based on frontage, regardless of the actual width of the public way or open space. Where the value of W varies along the perimeter of the building, the calculation performed in accordance with Equation 5-5 shall be based on the weighted average calculated in accordance with Equation 5-4.

W = (L1 x w1 + L2 x w2 + L3 x w3...) / F  (Equation 5-4)


where:

W (Width: weighted average) = Calculated width of public way or open space (feet).
Ln = Length of a portion of the exterior perimeter wall.
wn = Width (≥ 20 feet) of a public way or open space associated with that portion of the exterior perimeter wall.
F = Building perimeter that fronts on a public way or open space having a width of 20 feet (6096 mm) or more.


Exception: Where a building meets the requirements of Section 507, as applicable, except for compliance with the minimum 60-foot (18 288 mm) public way or yard requirement, and the value of W is greater than 30 feet (9144 mm), the value of W shall not exceed 60 feet (18 288 mm).


This section is considered: Passed

The public way or open space adjacent to the building perimeter has a minimum distance (W) of 30.00 ft.

Since the minimum frontage distance (W) is not less than 20.00 ft, the building may qualify for an area factor increase based on frontage. See Section 506.3.3 for the frontage increase calculation.

The Exception is Section 507 has not been implemented. Please verify manually.

Section 506.3.3 - Amount of increase

Building Code

The area factor increase based on frontage shall be determined in accordance with Equation 5-5:

If = [ F/P - 0.25 ] x W/30  (Equation 5-5)


where:

If = Area factor increase due to frontage.
F = Building perimeter that fronts on a public way or open space having minimum distance of 20 feet (6096 mm).
P = Perimeter of entire building (feet).
W = Width of public way or open space (feet) in accordance with Section 506.3.2.

This section is considered: Passed

The area factor increase as follows:


If = [ 49.40 ft / 209.80 ft - 0.25 ] * 30.00 ft / 30.00 ft
If = 0.00 %
