Is it law to have some sort of heat detection in an underground car park at the workplace?
There are two levels and currently no smoke heads or means of detection. There are areas of ventlation through grated gantries / walkways on the ground level due to the design of the building.
There are fire extinguishers and fire exits in place.
Thank you

It really depends on the layout of your underground car park and the type of ventilation/ fire walls installed - Take a peek at Document B of the Building Control Guidelines and hopefully you should find what you are looking for: Full Gov Portal:...
