You would be correct.  An F-1 occupancy is limited to the first floor only in a building of V-B construction that is not sprinklered.

As there has been no response on my previous question, I will try another approach...

Table 503 describe allowable areas and building heights. question is - under an F-1 occupancy group, type V-B construction states: allowable area =8500 s.f, one story, 40' allowable building ht.

My interpretation is: an F-1 occupancy in a type V-B building can only be a 1 story building not exceeding 8500 s.f. without modifications. And, that an F-1 occupancy would not be allowed in a 2 story, Type V-B building?

 

Am I right or wrong.,. please clarify if possible.

Thanks for your assistance.
