The Code Council has revisited how best to provide an online, professional Discussion Forum and area within the website that has a sense of community – where Members and nonmembers can provide input and exchange ideas with their peers in the industry. The new Codes & Standards Discussion Forum does just that, as it allows Registered Website Users and ICC Members to discuss the I-Codes in an online community.
Note to Nonmembers: If you join the ICC you can have access to important building safety information!
As an ICC Member, you have access to the Members Area of the Codes & Standards Discussion Forum. Follow the link to discuss the Membership Councils and other benefits of being an ICC Member.

I need to determine the minimum plumbing fixture count for a restaurant/pool hall of about 3000 sf. The public area is about 2400 sf. From table A, I get 98 people (1/2M1/2Fe) The number that is derived from CPC table 1004.1.1 is a lot higher, 190
There is no proposed construction, just painting and some new furnishing and fixtures.
Am I right in assuming that that the plumbing fixture count OL and the OL for sign posting and exits are two separate and distinct issues and cannot be interchanged?

Assuming the occupancy is less than 150 and looking at Table 4-1, it appears as though you will need (2) W/C [1male,1female], (1) urinal, and (2) lavs [1male,1female].

But then doesn't footnote 14 require another Female WC to bring it up even?
In any event not my question. I would like to determine if the totals from Table A
and Table 1004.1.1 are separate and exclusive issues.
