The City of Chicago’s High Rise Sprinkler and Life Safety Evaluation Ordinances better protect the lives of residents, employees and visitors by requiring enhanced safety features in the City’s pre-1975 high rise buildings. The Sprinkler Installation Ordinance (13-196-205) requires all pre-1975 commercial high rise buildings that are not landmarked to install a full sprinkler system by January 1, 2017. This ordinance also exempts existing pre-1975 non-transient, residential high rise buildings from the requirement to fully sprinkler the building.
The High Rise Life Safety Evaluation Ordinance (13-196-206) requires that the high-rise commercial buildings and residential buildings exempted from retro-fitting with sprinklers must undergo a rigorous evaluation of the building’s life and fire safety features from an Illinois Licensed Design Professional. The Design Professional must then submit a Life Safety Evaluation (LSE) Report to the Department of Buildings and the Chicago Fire Department for their review and approval.
