A group seeking to build a distillery in Birmingham, AL discovered that they are in the city fire district that specifically adopted Appendix D of the IBC prohibiting facilities from handling flammable liquids above 120 gallons. We are wondering if anyone else ran into a similar situation and how they were able to work around it. The building and fire officials are seeking to work with them, so we need some supporting examples from a similar situation. All assistance will be greatly appreciated.

Mark Ward posted a topic in Welcome & Introduce YourselfHello! We're a Seattle-based architecture and design firm that specializes in distillery and alcoholic beverage production projects across the country. We recently completed the new home for Westland Distillery (see PDF below), the largest single malt whiskey distillery in in Washington State. We were a featured speaker at the recent ADI conference in Seattle, and are currently working on projects in Tumwater, WA, Edmonds, WA, Tacoma, WA and Lawton, OK. What we do. From telling your company's story through unique front-of-house guest experiences, to office spaces that foster teamwork, to LEAN optimized production and aging facilities, we design projects to strategically increase efficiency, sales, and brand loyalty. We have in-depth working knowledge of the International Fire, Mechanical, and Building Codes that most jurisdictions enforce, as well requirements of the TTB and state liquor boards. We also have extensive experience navigating complex Land Use codes. We work with producers and governing jurisdictions to design thoughtful, safe, and forward-thinking facilities. We manage relationships between equipment manufacturers, design and engineering teams, and general contractors. And last, your customers want to know what you're doing to decrease your ecological footprint. The truth is, buildings are deeply implicated in the consumption of our limited natural resources. Through elegant design and innovative problem solving, we create facilities that consume less and last longer - and we help you tell that story. No project is too big or too small - if you've got specific code-related questions, are just beginning to look for a space to launch your distillery, or are on your 3rd iteration - feel free to email, call, or contact me through this forum. Thanks in advance, we're looking forward to contributing here! Mark www.urbanadd.com Westland Distillery.pdf
Hello, We are in the process of trying to get a distillery setup in California and have run into an issue with regards to the building code. It appears that a distillery falls under Section 306 - Factory Group F, subsection 306.2 Factory Industrial F-1 Moderate-hazard Occupancy. (Which includes "Beverages: over 16-percent alcohol content.") Our problem is that the building we are looking at was not built for this type of occupancy and therefore will require some TI's. Unfortunitly, we are not exactly sure what TI's we need to do. So, I was wondering if anyone else has run into this situation and what did you do to resolve it? (The county building department is asking that we provide a Plan Review which includes a floor plan. Additionally, we need to include an electrical plan, plumbing plan, mechanical plan, details of construction/.engineering and a Title 24, for those items that would be applicable.) Does anyone have any plans they might be willing to share? Thanks! Gordon
