I have a 780 sq.ft. pool equipment building classified as a U occupancy under the 2013 California Fire Code. Code analysis suggest a design/build fire sprinkler system per NFPA 13. In our opinion a fire sprinkler system in not required. Group U isn't addressed very well as needing protection in the IFC 903.2 section. The best I could find is 903.2.11 to suggest fire sprinkler protection is not required. I'm trying to convince the architect it is not required. Any advice?
