Fire Pump selection as per NFPA 13

We are constructing a three storey hotel (60 Rooms) in the Caribbean region and although sprinklers are not required by code it is a Client preference. Hydraulic calcs come out at 380gpm required for the Fire Pump but the sprinkler contractor has selected a Fire Pump of 400gpm. We had understood that the minimum fire pump flow rate for NFPA 13 was 500 gpm (that's what it is in our jurisdiction). Appreciate some confirmation/feedback. Graham
