I have a highrise that exceeds 400-ft in height. The engineer designed a combination riser with all of the floor control assemblies coming from one riser, and not alternating as is in code.
I'm wondering if there's something I'm missing - any way around alternating the floor control assemblies, like upper-level pumps being considered separate systems or something of the like?
Looking for better understanding here and being sure I'm not missing something bigger picture. Thanks in advance.

I am pretty sure the threshold is 420 feet on the IBC for that requirement. I am going off the hip and may be wrong there.

The building actually exceeds 500' so it definitely falls under that code.
