Undetermined time No butane storage or use will occur per Mr. Lewis on behalf of owner. SPLICE SHEET SUBMITTED DATED 1/7/13 REDLINED " FUTURE LAB, NO MECHANICAL WORK" PPRBD MECHANICAL DEPT REVIEWED AND RELEASED FOR PERMIT AT THIS TIME. OK HAZMAT; APPROVED/CORRECTED AS REDLINED.
8/21/2012 Approved8/21/12: Owner, Jim Prince has submitted a narrative statement (SEE SCANNED ELECTRONIC DOCUMENTS) that states that butane extraction system shall be submitted for review and approval by the CSFD prior to any installation or use at this facility. 8/17 & 21/12 Plan Reviewer discussed this with PPRBD Mechanical (R Haupt): Plans do not declare, describe or identify butane process at this facility. Plans do not show location of future butane process equipment. RBD was unaware of the butane extraction process or any chemicals to be used or stored in this facility. RBD building, electrical and Mechanical reviews did NOT review these plans for this butane storage or process as this information was not provided in the plan set. CSFD brought this matter to the attention of the owner and RBD. CSFD plan reviewer notified owner, that plans may be subject to change pending the submittal of the butane system to CSFD AND PPRBD BUILDING, MECHANICAL AND ELECTRICAL DEPTS. ATTENTION OWNER RESUBMIT FULL SET OF PLANS WITH WITH THE BUTANE EXTRACTION PROCESS EQUIPMENT SPECIFICATIONS, MANFUCTURER'S INSTALLATION DOCUMENTS AND LISTINGS. ****PLANS SHALL BE REQUIRED TO BE SUBMITTED TO PPRBD BUILDING AND CSFD FOR REVIEW**** These plans are approved based on NO BUTANE EXTRACTION PROCESS EQUIPMENT OR USE, AND NO STORAGE OF BUTANE ON SITE.
8/14/2012 FYIThis project is: Discreet Treats, 288 S Academy, Suite C: interior remodel - change of occupancy SYSTEMS: none CN:Code: 09 IBC - 09 IFC - 11 PPRBC /Class: M, F2 / Const:II-B /Stories:1 /Size: 6775 /OL: 66 Additional Comments: Hazmat Review: Butane extraction unit - Redesign; LAB area (unit to be installed); small quantities oxidizer, irritants, flammable gas (butane) and corrosive materials
FYICHEMICAL INVENTORY SEE ELECTRONIC DOCUMENTS All materials are below the MAQs and the CSFD annual operational permit thresholds. No permit required Due to the device and process, a Hazardous Materials Construction Inspection is required prior to the Certificate of Occupancy. Please contact the CSFD Div of the Fire Marshal @ 719-385-5978 to schedule the hazradous materials inspection. Note: No Carbon Dioxide was declared for this facility.
DisapprovedBUTANE EXTRACTION UNIT/APPLIANCE-DEVICE AND CHEMICAL INVENTORY Per owner: Jim 8/14/12 A Butane extraction unit will be installed and used in this facility (LAB AREA) in the near future. No specifications, information or declaration was noted on the plans submitted at this time. Kay spoke with Jim and verbally discussed needed information for resubmittal: Submit Butane extraction unit drawings, photos, specifications, equipment, safety, listings, etc Submit Plan sheets with all process and storage locations identified; quantity of butane; etc. Submit and show on plan sheets chemical storage locations. Per Jim, owner shall submit all butane extraction unit information for review and approval to CSFD prior to Installation. Owner will submit declaration in narrative to CSFD on the plan resubmittal that equipment and process shall be reviewed by building and fire dept prior to installation.
