My municipality is considering constructing 4 new DPS stations or remodeling the 6 existing ones. Having adopted the 2015 IBC, a new station would be required to have a storm shelter as per Section 423.3. My question is when does it become necessary during an alteration to require a storm shelter? 25%, 50%, 75% of the total square footage or a 100% remodel of the building? Thanks to everyone for your consideration.
