- a. For example, calculating the gross floor area of a building containing 3,126 square feet of storage occupancy and 2,000 square feet of business occupancy shall be performed as follows:
- 3,126 actual storage sq. ft. = 0.5002
- divided by 6,250 threshold
- 2,000 actual business sq. ft. = 0.5000
- divided by 4,000 threshold
- Total = 1.0002 [Go to Page]
