Hey Nick,  If the CBO agrees that it needs permits, I say let him deal with it under the OBC with the Architect.

If by “detention area” (detention occupancy is a defined term) and trying to look at it similar to jails/juvenile detention, I would disagree. It’s still part of the original A2 occupancy not a B1 as I would imagine they would only be holding a person temporarily until they can be moved to somewhere more appropriate. Even with that, it still falls under the OBC not the Fire Code for the construction.
