The suite should be considered as only one occupant space. The following situations should be considered to involve more than one occupant space: (1) Work affecting a corridor that is common to multiple guest rooms on a floor of a hotel occupancy (2) Work affecting a corridor that is common to multiple living units on a floor of an apartment building occupancy (3) Work affecting a corridor that is common to multiple tenants on a floor of a business occupancy
