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 are unclear as to what the scope of work is: - Plans are titled Clean Agent Fire Suppression System - Integration note states the clean agent calculations are in the cut sheets - the drawings don't reflect any clean agent components - no nozzles, tanks, piping, etc are given. and there are no clean agent calculations provided. - The Scope of Work and General Notes further confuse the situation as to what these plans are really for. It appears the plans are just for VESDA. Is this accurate? 2. Plans state Siemens will be installing all detection, including that for the clean agent system, however Siemens is not identified as the installing contactor for this scope fo work - which appears to be VESDA for the actuation of a clean agent system yet to be submitted. If anyone other than ETG Fire is installing this scope of work, they must be declared as such on the drawings and the RME must sign the cover sheet of the drawings. Also review the disapproved plans for additional written comments prior to submittal of new plans.
