Group B located inside (not separated from) factory building ( Group F-2).Is it required to be covered by sprinklers system??, Note that factory should be covered by sprinklers system as per nfpa101 ?
See attached pdf pls.
IBC Table 508.4 provides separation requirements for mixed occupancies. However, NFPA 13 would require the entire building to be equipped throughout with fire sprinklers regardless of occupancy or separation. It would then be left up to the AHJ's stance.
Based on the fact that you identified the occupancies as Group B and Group F-2 suggests that there is a building code in the jurisdiction where the building is located. As a general rule, if you want to treat the two occupancies differently from one another, you must provide a fire rated occupancy separation between them and meet ALL of the requirements (sprinklers, egress, fire alarm, etc.) for the occupancy class on each side of the occupancy separation wall. Otherwise, in a mixed occupancy such as you have described, you must meet the requirements for the most restrictive occupancy throughout the building. You should consult the specific requirements of the building code that applies in your jurisdiction.
