Welt is built to hold cars and interior deliveries. BMW knows it, building officials, engineers, etc. know it. The bldg should be designed like its a parking garage.

Parking garages are not filled with occupants? How do those cars get in and out of the structure?

When it comes to public fire/life safety, 1 life is as big a deal as 20. At least thats the way it is in the US.
