Approved/Corrected*****(STANDARD COMMENT) RED-LINED COMMENTS The following RED-LINED items are to be corrected prior to final inspection: NOTE: All references from 2019 NFPA 13 UNO. 1. Provide a zone map in riser room. A simple 8-1/2x11 sheet showing areas each riser protects, placed in a sheet protector and stapled to the wall is fine. This helps emergency crews shut down only the affected riser in the event of an emergency. 2. Sheet FP0.2: caution on spacing of sprinklers outside meeting room 110. Reference 10.2.5.4. 3. Sheet FP0.3: walls appear to be missing in F&B Storage area; add sprinklers to elevator pits; watch spacing between heads column lines D:1; Existing FDC is to be used! 4. Sheet FP0.5: Walls are missing in meeting rooms. Submit corrected revised plans (please remove the lighting fixtures - they look identical to your fire sprinkler symbols) prior to final inspection, for review and approval.

FYI(STANDARD COMMENT) LICENSED INSTALLER/SERVICE TECHNICIAN An On-Site Installer/Service TechniciaN shall supervise all on-site work on any fire protection system. This On-Site Installer shall have a current Installer Certificate (RBD Wallet Card), on his/her person, while on the job site.
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.
FYI(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. 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.

If this means that finished ceilings will need to be removed, this will be required to be done! (IFC 106.3)
