FYI(STANDARD COMMENT) CONCEALED SPACES - This plan did not provide any information on combustible concealed spaces. NFPA 13 requires that "All concealed spaces enclosed wholly or partially by exposed combustible construction shall be protected by sprinklers". There are several specific allowances to this section that allow for the omission of sprinklers. If there are combustible concealed areas found during the installation of the system that do not meet the requirements of the NFPA 13, then these areas will be required to be sprinkled. (NFPA 13:8.15.1) IT IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE INSTALLER TO MAKE SURE THAT THE SYSTEM IS INSTALLED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE STANDARD.
FYI(STANDARD COMMENT) FREEZING CONDITIONS It is the designer's responsibility to provide the building owner with a system design that will continue to function reliably even under adverse temperature conditions. The sprinkler contractor must be conscious of field conditions that may affect the performance of their system, such as drafts, disturbed insulation, installation along exterior walls, etc. and incorporate such conditions into a reliable design.
Attention(STANDARD COMMENT) CERTIFICATE OF INSTALLATION: It is the installer's responsibility to certify through this form (attached to the plans) that the system has been properly installed and tested. NOTE! CSFD will no longer be providing these forms as they are now available online at: https://coloradosprings.gov/sites/default/files/inline-images/installer_certificaiton.xlsx The form is to be filled out in its entirety PRIOR TO THE ARRIVAL OF THE FIRE INSPECTOR conducting the final inspection and/or acceptance test of the system. FINAL INSPECTIONS WILL NOT BE CONDUCTED WITHOUT THIS FORM BEING COMPLETED.
FYI(STANDARD COMMENT) AS-BUILT PLANS All deviations from approved plans shall be documented and submitted to CSFD for archival. Reviews will not be conducted on as-builts, as these field changes are often verified as compliant by the fire inspectors. All as-built plans shall be conspicuously marked as such. Any changes requiring approval prior to Final shall be submitted as a REVISION.

Disapproved*****(STANDARD COMMENT) DISAPPROVED COMMENTS The following information and/or corrections are needed prior to completing a full plan review. Please respond, in writing on letterhead, to each of the following comments: 1. Plans indicate that NFPA 13, Section 8.15.1.2.6 is being used to not protect the joist space between floors. Provide formal details on how fire stopping is being applied to meet this section and 11.2.3.1.5.1 (10). Also provide letter from general contractor acknowledging that they will be fire stopping the joist spaced per these NFPA 13 sections and the details provided. It is recommended that a meeting be set up with CSFD, GC, and Hydropro to review these fire stopping requirements prior to re-submittal. 2. Crosss section notes state that no sprinkler protection is being provided above the lowered bathroom ceilings. How are these ceilings being framed and is this space open to the joist space above? To ensure that proper sheet rock/framing is used to allow the omission of sprinkler heads within these spaces, also have the GC dictate the methods used for framing and sheetrocking of these areas in the letter required in reveiw comment #1. 3. Provide documentation in the letter required in review comment #1 stating that sheet rock is being installed behind all showers/tubs to meet the thermal barrier requirement of NFPA 13, 8.15.8.1.1 to allow sprinklers to be omitted from bathrooms. 4. Revise floor control valve assemblies to show check valves are provided per NFPA 14, 6.3.5. 5. Remove check valve shown in the standpipe/sprinkler supply shown righ outside stair 2. This check valve will prevent the FDC from supplimenting the water supply for the 1st floor and basement. 6. Sprinkler heads in 1st floor futuer open office are overspaced for Ordinary hazard design. 7. North end of 1st floor canopy is not properly protected with sprinkler heads and dry sidewall under canopy south of column line 3 is overspaced. 8. Provide additional sprinkler head on 2nd or 3rd floor of linen chute per NFPA 13, 22.1.5.2.2.1.4. 9. Why are you using a residential sprinkler head in 2nd floor corridor closet? 10. Hydraulic calculations have been reviewed and appear to be acceptable. Also review the disapproved plans for additional written comments prior to submittal of new plans.
