OP3 Protection of Adjacent Buildings from Fire



Intent 1:

To supersede the requirements of Sentence, which would otherwise require certain maximum areas of unprotected openings, and permit a doubling of unprotected openings if certain conditions are met [i.e. the building and certain rooms are sprinklered].

This is to limit the probability that a fire in the subject building will not be suppressed or controlled, which could lead to the spread of fire from the subject building to an adjacent building during the time required for emergency responders to perform their duties, which could lead to damage to the adjacent building.

Intent 2:

To supersede the requirements of the standards referenced in Article by requiring certain rooms to be sprinklered.
