building code winder type stairway design tread measurements

The only way we can validate this particular building code will be to verify the exact location of the winder walkline.

The minimum tread depth for a winder type design stairway is 11 inches and will be measured horizontally along the walkline between steps, from face of nosing on the upper step to face of nosing on the step you're measuring.
