Intent 1:

To exempt interconnected floor spaces in Group B, Division 1 occupancies from the requirements of Articles to, which would otherwise require certain fire protection measures, if the number of interconnected storeys is limited, on the basis that such occupancies [e.g. prisons or detention buildings] are expected to have:

  • continuous supervision that will be able to respond to a fire quickly and, if needed, evacuate the occupants, and
  • a minimized fire load within any fire compartment.
