Slab-on-grade sloped for sprinkler drainage under access floor

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I'm designing an office building with an access floor.  They are sprinklering
under the access floor.  The mechanical engineer is telling me that I need to
slope the slab-on-grade to sump pits.

What is the maximum you can slope a slab supporting access floor?  I thought
I heard .5" maximum change over the whole thing.
