We are engaged in the certification and review of architectural plans for a new hotel building in accordance with NFPA codes. Apart from NFPA 101 which other codes need to be considered for the project to be considered NFPA compliant ?
In addition to NFPA 101 will need the individual standards or codes referenced in the core chapters for compliance with design and installation. The following are a few examples of codes or standards and whichever edition of 101 will determine the edition of the particular code or standard. Other codes or standards may be required to be used in your project depending on the scope of the project. These are just a few for example.
NFPA 13-FIRE SPRINKLER
NFPA 72-FIRE ALARM
NFPA 96-COMMERCIAL KITCHEN TYPE 1 HOOD
NFPA 17A-KITCHEN HOOD SUPPRESSION SYSTEM
NFPA 80-FIRE DOORS
You have asked a complicated question with no easy answer as the correct answer very much depends upon where the building is located, how many AHJ's have oversight, and what code(s) and edition(s) each AHJ has adopted.
In my experience, in addition to code compliance for local, state, federal requirements certain types of property owners often have their own additional requirements. Additional sources of potential code compliance requirements can include: insurance companies, accreditation agencies, and voluntary industry trade groups.
The type of review you indicated typically evaluate compliance with a wide variety of laws, regulations, and codes, i.e. building codes, fire codes, ADA, OSHA, EPA, etc.
Many codes, example NFPA 101, once adopted by an AHJ, reference through adoption dozens of additional NFPA, ANSI, ASTM, UL, etc. standards (see Chapter 2 - Referenced Publications).
Most often the scope of work is or should be defined by the client to specifically identify what code(s) and what edition(s) shall be used when performing the review.
The challenge for a performing a quality review becomes knowing: which code(s)/standard(s) are applicable, which edition(s) to utilize, and how to correctly resolve requirements that vary among the code(s)/standard(s) adopted by the various AHJ's.
