can two adjacent buildings share the same exit "vertical staircase enclosure"? If Yes, How shall the stair capacity should be calculated, it is the accumulative occupants from both buildings (50% (48 Occupant) from the apartment building as there is another remote staircase) and (33% (140 Occupants)from the business building as the design provides 3 staircases) or It should fit only the most large occupant load from the one of the buildings) ... shall the capacity of staircase be (140+48=188) or only fits for 140 occupants...or it will be depending if the evacuation strategy?
