    Where can I find in the Florida Building Code 2017 the illumination level required

    Hello,

    Where can I find in the Florida Building Code 2017 the illumination level required (normal power and egress) for: residential building corridors, elevator lobby, electrical room, pump room, lobbies, and building exterior?

    Thank you very much

    I would check the Building Code Section 1008

    No it isn't.

    Egress levels are in NFPA 101 or IBC 1008 as mentioned. I recall there is a minimum of 10 footcandles normal lighting in occupiable spaces. There are requirements for elevator pits. Otherwise IES has recommendations.
    The more they overthink the plumbing, the easier it is to stop up the drain
