We are often asked to include plumbing fixture count requirements on the code/life safety summary pages. It's a huge life safety issue, I know....
IBC 2015 Table 2902.1 lists the required amount of lavatories. However, in the table there is a separation of Male and Female columns. Does this mean, in Group A-1 for instance, that there needs to be 1 lavatory for every 200 men and 1 lavatory for every 200 women? Or, does this just mean 1 lavatory for every 200 people in the building?
Other occupancies, such as A-4, are very clear as they divide out by gender. Thanks in advance!
