Re: Load - Occupany Live Load -Reply

I remember the same problem the owner of the fitness center had with his
place. It is part of an existing retail building and converting it to a
fitness center accessible to the public requires him to change the building
occupancy to assembly area which triggered a lot of other code requirements
including the 100 psf live load.

I think they solve it by changing the name of the place to a fitness club and
claimed that it is not open to everybody but only to paying members of their
private club. Pretty smart, huh.
