I am replacing existing doors in a 1155SF facility, it serves as an office for 911 quick response employees. What are the requirements for the doors in a facility this size? The building is over 50 years old.
Look at the side and top to see of there is a label on it.
See if the label indicates if it is a fire rated door.
If so , than replace with same rating, and a door closure on it.
Does the existing door have panic hardware on it?
the existing have no labels or panic hardware. Do you know of any code that would specify the minimum requirements? sprinklers were just installed, walls are concrete

You would need to find out the building code that is adopted by the city/county/ state your building is located in.
Indirectly that is the governing document.
But, normally buildings are allowed to exist as is, if they met the code they were built under.
With all that, if there are rating labels on the door, and no panic hardware, I would say, with out being able to see the entire set up,
That you can install any door you want.
Do you have a particular concern?
I was asked to install 60 min interior doors but when I quoted I didn't realize they were so expensive, they also asked me to comply with the NFPA. I was trying to get around without installing the 60 min doors but still comply with NFPA.

2. Are these just doors to offices?
3. Are they doors from a corridor, into offices?

Yes that label does cost money
