    What are the three parts to egress?

    • A.

      Entry, lobby, exit

    • B.

      Main entry, secondary entry, exit

    • C.

      Exit access, ext, exit discharge

    • D.

      Exit, exit discharge, public way

    Correct Answer
    C. Exit access, ext, exit discharge
    Explanation
    The three parts to egress are exit access, ext, and exit discharge. Exit access refers to the path that leads from the occupied area to the exit, ensuring a safe and unobstructed route. Ext, short for exit, refers to the actual exit door or opening through which people can leave the building. Lastly, exit discharge refers to the path that leads from the exit to a public way, providing a safe and clear path for individuals to reach safety outside the building.

    Business occupancies of 3050 square feet require how many exits, with door swing in which direction?

    • A.

      One exit - swing in exit travel direction

    • B.

      One exit - swing into space

    • C.

      Two exits - swing in exit of travel direction

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. Two exits - swing in exit of travel direction
    Explanation
    Business occupancies of 3050 square feet require two exits that swing in the exit travel direction. This means that there should be two separate exit doors that open in the direction of the exit travel, allowing people to easily and quickly exit the building in case of an emergency. This requirement ensures the safety of occupants by providing multiple exit options and ensuring that the doors open in a way that facilitates efficient evacuation.

    • C.

      0" beside and 36" in front

    • D.

      24" beside and 48" in front

    Correct Answer
    B. 12" bedside and 48" in front
    Explanation
    The minimum clear dimension at the push side of a door with latch and closer is 12" bedside and 48" in front. This means that there should be a minimum of 12" of clear space beside the door on the push side and a minimum of 48" of clear space in front of the door on the push side. This allows for proper accessibility and ease of use for individuals using the door.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    A five-story building requires which of the following fire ratings for exit enclosures?

    • A.

      1/2 hour

    • B.

      1-1/2 hour

    • C.

      2 hour

    • D.

      3 hour

    Correct Answer
    C. 2 hour
    Explanation
    A five-story building requires a 2-hour fire rating for exit enclosures because exit enclosures are crucial in providing safe and protected means of egress during a fire emergency. A 2-hour fire rating means that the enclosure can withstand fire and heat for a longer duration, providing more time for occupants to evacuate safely. This higher fire rating is necessary for taller buildings to ensure that the exit routes remain intact and usable for a longer period, minimizing the risk of collapse and allowing for a more efficient evacuation process.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Business occupancies of more than 3000 square feet shall require which of the following?

    • A.

      Dead-end corridors of 20 feet max

    • B.

      All doors to be 30" wide min

    • C.

      Doors swinging into exit passageway 24" max

    • D.

      Exit signs painted over doors

    Correct Answer
    A. Dead-end corridors of 20 feet max
    Explanation
    Business occupancies of more than 3000 square feet shall require dead-end corridors of 20 feet max. This means that the corridors in these business occupancies should not exceed a length of 20 feet without a means of egress. This requirement is important for the safety of occupants, as it ensures that there are no excessively long corridors that could impede evacuation in case of an emergency.

    Which item would not be classified as an ‘out of pocket expense’ as the term is typically used in contracts?

    • A.

      Drafting time

    • B.

      Long distance calls

    • C.

      Automobile mileage

    • D.

Out of pocket expenses typically refer to actual expenses incurred by an individual that require them to spend money, such as long distance calls, automobile mileage, or blueprinting, which involve tangible costs.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    During an Interior Construction project, the contractor determines that the building’s existing freight elevator is inadequately sized to transport some necessary materials to the job site.  In accordance with the contract documents, the contractor has visited the job site prior to submitting his bid.  If he incurs additional costs to transport said materials, and tries to submit a change order after the contract has been awarded, who should absorb the costs?

    • A.

      Designer

    • B.

      Owner

    • C.

      Contractor

    • D.

      Owner and Contractor should split the costs

    Correct Answer
    C. Contractor
    Explanation
    The contractor should absorb the costs because they are responsible for determining if the existing freight elevator is adequate for transporting necessary materials to the job site before submitting their bid. As per the contract documents, the contractor has already visited the job site and should have assessed the situation properly. Therefore, any additional costs incurred due to the inadequacy of the elevator should be the contractor's responsibility.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    During the bidding phase of an interior renovation project, the owner communicated to the designer a minor dimensional change required to provide adequate clearances for a new piece of the owner’s equipment.  The designer neglected to issue this change to the contractor.  If the owner rejects the room because of the inadequate size, who should absorb the costs?

    • A.

      Designer

    • B.

      Owner

    • C.

      Contractor

    • D.

      Owner and Designer should split the costs

    Correct Answer
    A. Designer
    Explanation
    If the owner rejects the room because of the inadequate size, the designer should absorb the costs. This is because the owner communicated the dimensional change to the designer, but the designer neglected to issue this change to the contractor. Therefore, it was the designer's responsibility to ensure that the necessary changes were communicated and implemented correctly, and they failed to do so. As a result, they should bear the financial consequences of their negligence.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    Which of the following is NOT considered part of the Contract Documents?

    • A.

      Shop Drawings

    • B.

      Specifications

    • C.

      Change Orders

    • D.

      Details

    Correct Answer
    A. Shop Drawings
    Explanation
    Shop drawings are not considered part of the contract documents. Contract documents typically include the specifications, change orders, and details, which are essential for the execution and completion of a construction project. Shop drawings, on the other hand, are detailed drawings created by contractors, subcontractors, or suppliers, illustrating how specific elements of the project will be fabricated, installed, or constructed. While shop drawings are important for coordination and communication purposes, they are not legally binding and are not typically included as part of the contract documents.

    What is NOT applicable when planning egress from a space?

    • A.

      Location of elevators

    • B.

      Length and width of corridor

    • C.

      Direction of door swings

    • D.

      Type of occupancy

    Correct Answer
    A. Location of elevators
    Explanation
    When planning egress from a space, the location of elevators is not applicable. The location of elevators is more relevant for vertical transportation within a building, rather than for egress planning. Factors such as the length and width of corridors, the direction of door swings, and the type of occupancy are more important considerations when planning for a safe and efficient evacuation from a space.

    In a 90,000 sf, single-story office building, what would be the greatest concern in space planning?

    • A.

      Dead-end corridors

    • B.

      Corridor widths

    • C.

      Horizontal exits

    • D.

      Travel distances

    Correct Answer
    D. Travel distances
    Explanation
    In a 90,000 sf, single-story office building, the greatest concern in space planning would be travel distances. This refers to the distance that occupants would need to travel to access different areas of the building. It is important to minimize travel distances to ensure efficiency and convenience for the occupants. This can be achieved by strategically placing different departments or areas of the building closer to each other, reducing the time and effort required to move between them.

    Rate this question:

  • 19. 

    The two most important factors in determining the number of exits required for a particular room or space are

    • A.

      Occupancy and the distance from the room exit to the building exit

    • B.

      The exit widths and common path of egress travel

    • C.

      The occupant load and buliding size

    • D.

      The occupancy and the occupant load

    Correct Answer
    D. The occupancy and the occupant load
    Explanation
    The correct answer is the occupancy and the occupant load. The number of exits required for a room or space depends on the number of people occupying it and the maximum number of occupants that the space can hold. The occupancy refers to the type of activity or use of the space, while the occupant load refers to the actual number of people present. Both factors are crucial in determining the number of exits needed to ensure a safe and efficient evacuation in case of an emergency. The distance from the room exit to the building exit and the exit widths are also important, but they are not the primary factors in determining the number of exits required.

    Rate this question:

  • 20. 

    Which of the following is an INCORRECT statement about corridors?

    • A.

      Corridor construction must be fire-rated

    • B.

      Corridors are part of the exit access

    • C.

      Corridors must be used exclusively for egress

    • D.

      Corridors are included in calculating travel distances

    Correct Answer
    A. Corridor construction must be fire-rated
    Explanation
    Corridor construction must be fire-rated is an INCORRECT statement about corridors. While it is important for corridors to have fire-resistant materials and proper fire protection measures, not all corridor construction must be fire-rated. Fire-rated construction is typically required for walls, doors, and other elements that separate the corridor from adjacent spaces, but not necessarily for the entire corridor construction.
