Default sink > 12' from wet vent

Hello - I'm trying to help a customer. He is remodeling his kitchen in a high rise in Philadelphia, PA. He wants his sink > 12' away from the existing wet stack. Also, there doesn't appear to be an air stack to support this either. I believe local code states that the sink trap must be within 12' of the wet stack. Is there a way to mitigate this? I've read the use of Chicago loops and Studor vents, but it's unclear if any of this is allowed per Phila code. Please note: I'm not a plumber, I'm a GC. Many thanks in advance.

You can install this vent fan, it's in the 2016 plumbing code.

just run the sink drain out the side of the building, plumbing systems are so over rated, then you dont need to follow any codes..

Quite popular, and quite easy to do it this way. You don't need to pay a plumber either.

First and foremost you're a fool to be involving yourself in a trade for which you are not licensed. Secondly, you're working outside the scope of your license which is illegal.

Do your customer a favor and refer them to a qualified plumbing contractor.
