I'm working on a project with an overhang that has patient rooms above. The ceiling of the overhang serves as a "canopy" for ambulances, which will back in under the overhang to protect patients from the elements when unloading the ambulances.
The design and completed construction do not include any fire suppression including sprinklers.
Are sprinklers required for this canopy?
