I would have thought that maybe interlinked smokes with a heat in the kitchen would be adequate.

BS5839 will give you some guidance.

Check your insurance covers you for fitting fire alarms in offices, if not you could find your self with a very large bill if something went wrong.

Get a 2 zone (to allow for expansion) panel in there. Put a smoke in every room and a heat in the kitchen. You could put in sounder bases which would basically require a 4 core running to each detector/sounder base or run a seperate sounder circuit. If public enter the building you might also need strobes/sounder strobes. Don't forget to put a detector in the lobby/entrance hall and a break glass on exit routes and at the entrance/exit.

Blimey, Ive just told you how to do the job, that'll be 10 pounds please ;)

Why guess? just call the local fire prevention, they will come and give guidence for free. Most times fire officers like to give input, detour round the council and ask direct from the guys that count
