Sprinklers to be compulsory in all high-rise buildings above 11m

Sprinklers to be compulsory in all high-rise buildings above 11m

As of May 2020, all buildings above 11m will now require sprinklers. The Approved Document B set out by the Government has reduced the level from 30m to 11m in order to improve health and safety within high-rise buildings. The change has come after pauses to the Grenfell Tower enquiry due to the current Covid-19 Pandemic.
