Hi, see question below. I don’t understand why you’d only take into account the Dance Studio portion and leave out the offices and other occupied spaces ? Certainly those workers add to the occupant load. And the question asks for the project not the dance studio alone.
While performing a site analysis, the architect determines that on-site parking is necessary.
How many accessible parking spaces are required for the project? Assume that the client has decided not to move forward with the additional floor for an exercise room.
The answer is 3
According to the parking requirements for a Dance Hall/Assembly area with no seats, one parking space is required for every 50 square feet of floor area used for assembly or dancing. The dance studio measures 3,500 square feet, so 7 spaces are required (3,500 sf / 50 spaces per square foot = 70).
Per IBC Table 1106.1, when 51-75 total spaces are provided, three spaces are required to be accessible
