I’m currently a student at Algonquin College in the Architectural Technology program. For a project we have to design a building under Part 9 conditions of the OBC. Our building will consist of two occupancies; residential and restaurant.
In order to keep the restaurant under Part 9 standards we are limited to 30 seats, which is not enough.
So my question is, if we place the restaurant under part 3 standards, how does that affect the Part 9 residential? Will the building still be considered Part 9?
