Looks like you are on the right track. Also-in case the space you are working on has access to other common areas in the building, I recommend doing a whole building toilet count. Surplus fixtures/math rounding may work in your favor. The occupants in your space are permitted to travel up to 500’ (including going up or down 1 floor) to get to the required toilet facilities.

I working on renovation existing restrooms for a university, to create Gender Neutral Facilities in place of existing. My question is in regard to requirements to bring the fixture count into compliance, as I am certain they are currently lacking. If memory serves me well, you are required to provide additional fixtures if you are increasing the occupant load by 20%, and / or with a change of use? Am I missing any triggers to look out for?
I am digging into the IEBC and IPC, but wanted to check with this forum as well.
