Disapproved*****(STANDARD COMMENT 42) DISAPPROVED COMMENTS: The following information and/or corrections are needed prior to conducting a full plan review. PLEASE RESPOND IN WRITING ON LETTERHEAD TO EACH OF THE FOLLOWING COMMENTS: 1. 10 percent reduction was incorrectly calculated. The 90% curve must be a parallel line to the original. By taking only 2 psi from the residual 20 psi, you have a line whose slope is not equal to or greater than the original, but one with a slope less than the original. Please reference the proper reduction calculation method in our packet, provided in the plans. NOTE: a verification calc shows the demand point falls on or below the corrected curve. Please correct the numbers. 2. Scope of work indicates use of the 2010 edition of NFPA 13 but the project design information indicates 2013 edition. Be advised the proper edition for this project is the 2013 and plans must be corrected to show this information. 3. Add sprinkler to bathroom of unit 135. 4. Soffit depths are not provided. 5. Sprinkler and diffuser locations are shown but no indication of compliance with sectio0n 8.3.2 for temperature ratings indicated. 6. Hydraulics nodes between plans and calculation do not match. 7. Graphic scale was not provided as required. 8. Matchlines were not provided as required. COMPLETE RE-REVIEW WILL BE NEEDED TO VERIFY HYDRAULICS AND TEMP RATINGS. Also review the disapproved plans for additional written comments prior to submittal of new plans.
