Could you please help with the emergency exits design for a mess hall? The design calculations, how many doors to number of persons, the width of door, and documents reference for the support?
Size would help
square feet. I don’t do metric
In terms of the 2012 NFPA 101, Life Safety Code, I am going to use those code sections references.
Step 1 - Determine if new construction or existing building - Chapter 4
Step 2 - Determine occupancy classification - Chapter 6 [a mess hall gathers people for cooking, food storage, dining, and entertainment- predominate occupancy could be assembly]
Step 3 - Determine design occupant load - Section 7.3.1
Step 4 - Determine the arrangement for the means of egress -
Your question needs a lot of discovery of the facts before a meaningful answer can be found.
