Plumbing vent stack


I am just curious, I seen this bank today with a normal looking house tile roof with no roof penetrations. No plumbing stack, nothing. So am I missing something or do commercial buildings in Florida use something else for plumbing venting? Just curious and couldn't find anything on google.

Yeah that's what Made me so curious. I even walked around it twice trying to see if I missed something. But I don't know much about commercial systems so I thought well maybe they use another system since usually commercial buildings have a hard fast flush.

Look on the side of the building up toward the roof line.

Some states allow the use of Air Admittance Valves (AAV) or Studdard Vents. You don't need roof penetrations with one of those.

Are there any pipes sticking through the side walls above 10 foot high?

Maybe there's no plumbing in the bank.

In that case, the IRS building probably doesn't have any vents either.
