Attached sketch shows utility xfmr1 200A 480/277V existing which feeds the existing fdr #1 electrical room in multi occupancy bldg.

The plans now show new xfmr2 800A 480/277V which feeds thru new fdr #2 Electrical Room.

Told that a building can have only one service and second is not acceptable thru any exception.
I was told 230.40 exception #1 applies electrical room is occupancy so one set of service entrance conductor is running for each service defined in 230.2 to the occupancy.

I said no that’s not an occupancy and he says he can get translation.

I don’t know what to say. Can anyone please help me out what is wrong with that statement , how to stop it and any non compliance of code here?
