This sounds like a commercial job for which I assume you are getting paid. This is a DIY site, you probably should check out the contractor side of things. It also sounds like you need a design for the project, so maybe you need an architect? Or at least plans from the owner.

I agree with the above. You also need a permit to convert to double occupancy. This would include the electrical, fire-wall and possible egress required.

If any ads are present below my answer or words underlined/colored, I do not condone/support/use the product or services listed/linked to, they are there without my consent.
