The fireproofing requirement was mentioned, and the architect said the
requirements could be met by attaching two layers of gyp-board to the
underside of the floor at a much lower cost.
The basement is to be used for retail, storage, and fitness in different
areas. The entire first floor is retail except for access corridors for the
loft apartments above.
The EOR for the project is mainly concerned about things like development
length of exposed splices.
