I am at a Skilled Nursing facility in northern California. Our administrator wants us to remodel our front doors and reduce 4 exit doors down to two. I need to make sure that there is going to be adequate space per person for egress in the facility.


We are a sprinkler facility with about 100 residents and 50 employees at the most at any given time. 


I need to make sure I am following the 2012 edition of the NFPA 101 because I believe the 2018 edition he's more lenient with the open weight per person type calculations but I could be wrong. 


I of course need to make sure thatwe are going to be in full compliance before any work is done.


Thank you very much for your help.
