FIRE SPRINKLERS ARE REQUIRED IN NEW CONSTRUCTION MULTIFAMILY DWELLINGS OF THREE UNITS AND GREATER

Effective since January 1, 2011, Wisconsin state law requires the installation of an automatic fire sprinkler system in all new construction multifamily dwellings of three units and greater. The requirement replaces the previous threshold of nine units and greater that went into effect March 1, 2008, and twenty units before then.

The requirement is contained in Wisconsin Commercial Building Code, SPS 362.0903, which follows the 2009 International Building Code, Section 903.3.
