SDCI recently published a new 2018-SBC code interpretation, SBC 2902.1 Minimum Number of Fixtures Reduction for Facilities Serving R-2 Amenity Areas. This interpretation explains that SDCI will allow a 1 water closet and 1 lavatory reduction in the minimum number of fixtures required at plumbing facilities serving apartment building amenity spaces like lounges, fitness rooms, and roof decks when these spaces are only used by the building’s residents and their private guests. This flexibility is allowed because residents and their guests already have access to their own apartment’s 1 water closet and 1 lavatory minimum plumbing facilities.
