|DEMONSTRATION OF UNDUE HARDSHIP OR HISTORICALLY SIGNIFICANT STRUCTURE:|
| Imposition of the rule would result in an undue hardship (unusual difficulty) because of physical limitations of the construction site or its utility services.
| Imposition of the rule would result in an undue hardship (unusual difficulty) because of major operational problems in the use of the building or structure.
|Y|| Imposition of the rule would result in an undue hardship (unusual difficulty) because of excessive costs of additional or altered construction elements.
| Imposition of the rule would prevent the preservation of an architecturally or a historically significant part of the building or structure.
|Facts:|| The hardship is that the limitations of the layout does not allow for a 50' travel distance through only 2 intervening rooms. Also, construction is underway and alterations to the entire floor plan would be needed to reconfigure the patient care suite.
