That’s a question for your local building official. The code section you are looking for specifically exempts sprinkler piping… depending on how you read it. Some around here say “no way”. Others don’t mind.

I know there is a building code section that doesn't allow any systems in a stairwell that don't serve the stairwell, but I don't know the exact section to check the language. The way I'm looking at it, a dry riser is the same as a floor control assembly, as they are both system risers. Therefore it shouldn't be a problem. However it's being questioned by a building code official. Is this allowed?
