City of SD?  LOL, we're having that go-round on another project right now ...

Sorry, don't have a better answer than, "Common sense and the properties of 
convection suggest that installing sprinklers that high on the exterior of a 
building entails a very low chance of successful cause and effect."

Subject: Height of overhanging Eaves/canopies

Is there code addressing the height of exterior eave and providing protection 
underneath. I have a couple of buildings where the FM is requiring protection 
in the exterior eaves. Some of these eaves are over the ground  level at the 
5th floor level. I also had another project where the question was asked about 
an projection on a 12th roof level.
