Bodies call for sprinklers in schools

Professional bodies including the CIOB, the National Fire Chiefs Council (NFCC), Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA), and Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), have signed a joint statement calling for sprinklers in schools. This includes the retrofitting of sprinklers in existing school buildings when relevant refurbishment takes place.

The joint statement reads, “Achieving a more consistent approach to life safety and sprinkler installations in schools that draws on best practice from all the UK nations would provide clarity to the industry and help better protect the public and communities.”
