Hi Gabriel,

The standard provides a wall priority diagram on page 9, which explains this. Looking from the left, you can see that "Building Service Areas, Parking (excluded)" is to the "FS" or Far Side of Floor Service Areas, Base Building Circulation, Occupant Areas, Amenity Areas and Occupant Storage. Therefore, Parking takes the walls of these neighboring areas. On the other hand, Parking Areas are to the "NS" or Near Side of Major Vertical Penetrations.
