You need to tell us in which State the project is in and what Codes and Code Year your State has adopted.

Generally speaking, you do not need to provide accessible egress in existing buildings.

I searched a little through the forums and couldn't find anything, feel free to re-direct me if this post already exists.

I'm doing a tenant finish project in an existing building, the occupant load is more than 50 so I'll need two exits, my question is, do both of these exits need to be fully accessible? As in, do I need a ramp or elevator or lift at each egress door? One exit is fully accessible with a ramp, door width etc. The other exit is an ADA set of stairs, door, railings etc, but no ramp or elevator or lift....
