Amendment 2 BS7671. Are Hotels High Risk Residential Buildings?

Hi All,

Hotel being designed that is greater than 6 floors so fits into the requirement of HRRB if it is considered a residential building. If the hotel is classified as a HRRB then we will require AFDDs. Essentially looking to know if hotels are classed as residential buildings under BS7671 as this will define if AFDDs are a requirement. Has anyone got any recent or current experience with hotels and AM2 and did you include AFDDs? 

As a further question, would you consider AFDDs on all final circuits with socket outlets<32A or only in bedrooms? This hotel has office space and kitchen ect which will all have socket outlets<32A.

Thank you very much in advance!

Ewan
