We are having a discussion in our office; we are doing a 14,000 square foot addition. The existing riser has 2 systems that are approximately 40,000 square foot each. On the middle of one of the systems there is a dry system for the loading dock.
Does the dry system count as its own system or is it included in the 40,000 square feet for purposes of a total system area?
