A prescriptive and performance based analysis has been conducted on a College Campus Building in Southern California. This building is still in the approvals process and has been designed to meet the design standards in the 2010 California Building Code (CBC) and relevant NFPA codes. The building is proposed to be the center of operations as well as having administration facilities for the College. It will house an administrative office, production and support facilities. The project is three stories and includes a balcony that does not qualify as a story. The top floor is greater than 30 feet from grade and the largest floor has an area of approximately 12,500 square feet. The building is comprised of Group A and B occupancies in a separated mixed-use configuration. The building will be of Type II-B construction.
