5-14-11State housing facilities to be fire resistant--Exceptions--Promulgation of rules.

No state building may be designed or constructed for the permanent housing of human beings that is not fire resistant. This section does not apply to the use of buildings constructed or renovated prior to July 1, 2007, or to one-family or two-family dwellings used for employees' housing at institutions under the control of the executive branch or the Board of Regents.

A fire resistant building within the meaning of this section is a building with appropriate fire detection devices as approved by the Department of Public Safety and constructed in compliance with the provisions of the International Building Code utilizing fire resistive construction throughout and equipped with an automatic fire-extinguishing system. The Bureau of Human Resources and Administration shall promulgate rules pursuant to chapter 1-26 to establish the edition of the International Building Code which would be applicable to this section. Nothing in this section prevents the application of more restrictive conditions by individual agencies. The Bureau of Human Resources and Administration shall identify those buildings which are subject to this section and make all determinations of compliance with these requirements.
