We have a client that is looking at building a fireworks retail store on the edge of town. The county is requiring the store to be sprinklered, but no one can give any direction on how to protect it and NFPA does not call out coverage for this type of business.
It is an H-3 occupancy, covering roughly 10,000 sqft.
Is there a standard that offers guidance on how to go about protecting a facility like this?
Thanks in advance.
