Hi everyone. I'm looking to renovate an existing building and put in a nightclub/restaurant/bar. It's approx 10,000 sq/ft and I have 4 HVAC design/build subs telling me 4 different things on what I need.
One is saying (5) 40 ton roof top units, another saying (5) 12.5 ton units, another saying (1) 80 ton and (3) 40 ton units.
My question is; based on the IBC or IMC what is the required load for an occupany classification of "Nightclub" vs "Restaurant/Bar/Lounge"? I don't own a copy of either and the local library doesn't have them. (New Hampshire)
Each sub is telling me different load requirements/ HVAC tonnage req.
Any help would be appreciated!
