12 unit, 3 story apartment building, 4 units per floor. The engineer has placed a small duct from three of the four apartments into the corridor for conditioning. They show fire dampers at each penetration which probably should be fire/smoke dampers. This duct placement almost guarantees negative pressure and the problems that will cause in the apartments. What I can't find is any code that specifically addresses this installation. Preferably against.
