Does a 280 sf office renovation require fire protection if there is not new construction?
I am sure your question has some sort of importance to you. Fire protection comes in several different forms for the fire safety in the building.
The requirements are based mainly on the use of the room; the occupancy classifications of the building; hazardous contents; and the building height and/or area limitations.
A reviewer of your project would integrate the existing building features to determine the fire safety requirements contained in the building and life safety codes of your jurisdiction.
Lacking this information in your post you may receive a very speculative response.
In the NFPA 101 perspective, Chapter 43 would apply to an existing building under going rehabilitation work. To apply Chapter 43, the existing building must comply with the existing occupancy requirements of NFPA 101.
