I'm working on a 4-story multifamily structure.
The structure has one common entrance, but is comprised of four separate buildings on four separate lots, all on the same city block.
There is a fire separation between each building.
I've been trying to find code language indicating that each building is required by code to have a separate fire alarm system, but have not found anything remotely definitive.
Would appreciate code reference/help here.
Most likely going to request a variance to use one system across all four buildings, but for my personal edification would really appreciate an appropriate IBC or NFPA 72 code reference.
