Existing Electric Room 110.26

Would the NEC 2017 110.26 C 3 require 2 doors for an existing electrical room with a 1600 amp service if the only new work is to add a  breaker feeding a new distribution board in a new Electrical room? Currently the room only has a single exit at one end with maybe 5ft of clear working space. I understand that its a good idea but I have a hard time justifying enforcing this on an existing building with no changes to the Main service.
