What types of buildings need sprinkler systems?
Currently, all new commercial construction is required to have sprinklers. Existing commercial buildings undergoing renovation may also be required to have a fire suppression system installed. Sprinklers may also be required in new or renovated residential construction depending on the size of the building. The BCFD recommends that all new construction - both commercial and residential - have sprinklers installed.
