I have a quick question, is there different standpipe requirements for buildings per IFC for commercial buildings versus dorms or hotels? If any type of building is over 30' to the highest story you are required to have a class III standpipe per the requirements of IFC in which you then reference NFPA 14 correct?
Does IFC essentially overrule the old 75' requirements for standpipes that was used back in the days?
