Design Analyses.  A fire protection design analysis is required for
all designs and shall address the fire protection requirements of the project
as required by this handbook.  The fire protection design analysis shall be
summarized and submitted separate from other disciplines.  Where applicable,
the following minimum fire protection provisions shall be discussed:
a)
Type of construction,
b)
Height and area limitations,
c)
Classification of occupancy,
d)

Standpipe systems and fire extinguishers,
n)
Interior finish ratings,
o)
Connection to and description of base fire alarm reporting
system.
Note:
When directed by the cognizant fire protection engineer,
projects with little or no fire protection considerations shall
not require a fire protection design analysis.
1.5
Services and Qualifications of Fire Protection Engineers.  Major
projects require the services and review of a qualified fire protection
