Compartmentalization in high rise multifamily buildings

GBA Editor | Posted in General Questions on

I am looking for information and technique on compartmentalization on multifamily family buildings. A question came up in a class about how to do this in existing high rises. The questions stems for one of the residences complaining about smoke and other indoor air pollutants getting into their apartment from a neighboring apartment.
