I’m actively seeking to deploy eMagispace across a few projects right now.
What you have to recognize in the world of construction is that eMagispace’s sweet spot is partial height walls, whether that’s 5’ for cubicles or 20’ for warehouse spaces and for production sets. Partial height walls do not trigger a spate of building codes.
Once you build full-height walls and enclose the envelope by attaching this wall to the ceiling, is where I’m testing how all of this would work:
how does HVAC service each room?
how do sprinklers service each room? Or do they even need to?
how does egress, ADA, etc. get affected?
The dilemma becomes more critical for licensed architects:
would an architect be bound to submit to a building department for a permit if a product like eMagispace may not require getting a permit…but the architect may realize that the use of eMagispace may cause issues like egress, ADA, etc. to become critical?
would a regular person (typical coworkiing owners) who builds with eMagispace without a building permit be ethically concerned if he doesn’t know these critical issues might have come up in the first place?
So the safe thing is to get a building permit. But I anticipate that the building department will get more confused at the product and its impact than the effort to do the [potentially] right thing.
Stand by as I navigate this process.
The answer will likely be some hybrid: selective application of the eMagispace product and selective submittal thru the building dept.

The good thing about EmagiSpace is that you could repurpose the walls and materials if you wanted to switch it up in the future.
Jerome, as an architect, I would love hear your thoughts about Emagispace. This could probably be a new thread. For example, if I was doing a new build out in an open space would this be a good option? Would it lower my risk of sprinkler regulation? Since there is a construction worker shortage, do you think is a good viable option?
