Flashcards in 4 Construction Types And Occupancy Classification's Deck (67):
1

Occupancy classification is based on

The use of the structure

2

The construction type is based on the fire resistance of materials and

Design of the structure

3

Construction type in occupancy classification are established by building codes that are

Adopted by local authority

4

The selection of a construction type is determined by the occupancy type building size and

Presents or lack of automatic fire suppression

5

Building construction type is based on the materials used in the construction as well as

The fire resistance of their structural components

6

What time of structural component meets the criteria for type I construction

Reinforced concrete, precast concrete, protected steelframe

7

Type I a fire resistance hours

Three

8

Type I b resistance hours

2

9

Type ii a resistance hours

1

10

Type IIB resistance hours

0

11

Type iii a structural frame fire resistance hours

1

12

Type IIIB structural frame fire resistance hours

0

13

In type I buildings both a and B types, floor construction including supporting beams and joists have a fire rating of how many hours

2

14

Exterior and interior loadbearing walls for all building construction types are how many hours

The same as its rating except type III who's exterior is rated at two hours

15

Classified as type ii construction are composed of building materials that

That will not contribute to fire development or spread

16

What type of building construction is normally use when fire risk is expected to be be low or when suppression and detection systems are designed to meet hazard load

Type ii

17

Type IV construction is often referred to as heavy timber and is characterized by the use of large dimension lumber of what size for all structural elements

Greater than 4 inches

18

Any other material used in construction type I V and is not composed of what must have a fire resistance rating of

One hour

19

A structure that uses a glued laminated beam supported by a steel column cannot be classified as

Type IV

20

General types of occupancy classification

Assembly.
Business.
Educational.
Day care.
Industrial.
Institutional.
Mercantile.
Residential.
Residential board and care.
Storage.
Utility/miscellaneous.
Multiple

21

What uniform firecode separates daycare and residential board and care into their own categories

NFPA 101

22

And assembly occupancy is any building structure or compartment that is used for the gathering of how many people

50 or more

23

NFPA divides assembly occupancies into class a structures that have loads over

1000

24

NFPA assembly occupancy class B

301 through 1000 people

25

NFPA class C assembly occupancy

50 through 300

26

Buildings that provide a workplace for large numbers of occupants in an office environment

Business occupancies

27

Inherent benefit of interior organization for business occupancies

Compartmentalization

28

Any building your portion of the building that is used for the purpose of education of 6 or more persons from preschool through 12th grade that meets at 4 or more hours in a day or more than 12 hours a week

Educational occupancy

29

Amount of people allowed in a classroom space for educational occupancy

One person every 20 ft.²

30

How many people are permitted for laboratories vocational shops

One person every 50 ft.²

31

Gymnasiums lecture halls and dining also follow what requirement for occupancy

Assembly requirements for occupancies

32

NFPA classifies manufacturing and processing facilities as what type of occupancy

Industrial occupancy

33

Three subdivisions of industrial occupancies

General purpose. Special purpose. High hazard

34

Buildings classified as group i institutional by the ICC codes are occupancies in which

People with physical limitations due to health or age are cared for and provided medical treatment

35

Institutional occupancies defined by NFPA 101

Health care.
Ambulatory healthcare.
Detention and correctional.
Residential board and care.
Day care

36

Facilities to provide health or medical services to four or more individuals who cannot the back with them selves during an emergency assistance from staff

Healthcare occupancy

37

In order for some healthcare occupancies to obtain Medicare certification they may have to abide by

NFPA 101

38

Staff members in these types of facilities are responsible for the safety and welfare of the residence but they do not provide medical or nursing care

residential board and care occupancies

39

If one resident at a nursing facility has slow if activation capabilities and the rest have prompt capabilities the entire occupancy must be classified as

Slow

40

Facilities that provide care maintenance and supervision of persons of any age for periods of less than 24 hours a day

Daycare occupancies

41

Pharmacies are considered what type of building classification

Mercantile

42

Occupancies that provide sleeping accommodations under conditions other than those defined for healthcare or detention occupancies

Residential occupancies

43

NFPA further divided residential occupancies into the following categories

One and two family dwelling units.
Lodging or rooming house.
Hotel.
Dormitory.
Apartment building

44

One into family dwellings are not exempted in the model codes. However they are not subject to

Periodic inspections in most jurisdictions

45

Facilities that provide sleeping accommodations for rent

Lodging or rooming houses

46

NFPA 101 uses lodging or rooming house classification to describe occupancies include guesthouses, foster homes, bed-and-breakfast, and motels that provide 24 hour accommodations for how many individuals

16 or fewer individuals without cooking facilities

47

Any building or group of buildings that provide sleeping rooms for transients

Hotel

48

Any building or portion of the building in which sleeping accommodations are provided to 16 or more persons who are not related

Apartment buildings

50

NFPA use as a broad approach to classify storage occupancies. They include the following

Warehouses.
Storage units.
Freight terminals.
Parking garages.
Aircraft hangers.
Grain elevators.
Barns.
Stables

51

Maximum amount of a hazardous material to be stored or used within a control area inside a building or an outdoor control area

Maximum allowable quantity

52

Maximum allowable quantity per control area is based on

The material state and the material storage or use conditions

53

The ICC describe storage within several occupancy classifications. Group s storage covers anything below the maximum allowable quantities. Anything with goods in excess of maximum allowable quantities falls into which ICC group

Group H hazardous classification

54

Examples of utility and miscellaneous occupancies are as follows

56

In the ICC building code, chapter 5, General Building Heights and areas, section 508, includes two divisions for multiple occupancies

Incidental and mixed-use

57

Buildings designated incidental shall conform to the occupancy requirements of

The building or portion of building it is located in

58

Waste and linen collection rooms that are over 100 ft.² are considered what type of use

Incidental use

59

For separations regarding incidental use the model code usually requires what

Fire resistance rating separations

60

Where permitted an automatic fire extinguishing system without a fire barrier can be installed as long as construction features do what for the incidental use area

Separate it from the rest of the building

61

Structures containing multiple occupancy types are considered to be

Mixed occupancies

62

The ICC further divides mix occupancies into

Accessory. Non-separated. Separated

63

Accessory occupancies are subsidiary to the main occupancy of a structure and limited to no more than what percent of the area of the story on which they are located

No more than 10%

65

Buildings or portions of buildings that have two or more occupancy uses each classified according to its own use

Non-separated

66

Entire structure and or portions of structures that have several occupancy types contained with in them Are referred to as

Separated
