All the new tall buildings for commercial and industrial use in Seattle and major cities of Washington State USA will soon benefit from the same systems installed in New York City some 6 years ago.

Of course, all existing buildings would clearly benefit from adopting the new code irrespective of any electrical systems installed and many forward thinking, "above minimum requirement" property owners will be considering improving their buildings for enhanced tenant safety.
