NOTE - THE NOTED DISAPPROVED ITEMS MAY NOT CONSTITUTE A COMPLETE LIST OF VIOLATIONS. THE DESIGNER IS TO CONDUCT A COMPLETE RE-REVIEW OF THE PLANS FOR ADDITIONAL VIOLATIONS OF THE STANDARD COMMENTS AND INCORRECT INFORMATION PRIOR TO RESUBMITTING.

 System plans must be picked up within 30 days. All system plans left longer than 30 days will be discarded as abandoned.

6/16/2014 AttentionCHEMICAL INVENTORY AND CO2 DECLARATION WERE UPDATED TO REFLECT BELOW MAQS AND BELOW PERMIT QUANITIES; ALSO BELOW 100 LB MINIMUM FOR ADMIN RULING REQUIREMENTS. THEREFORE NO FURTHER REVIEW AT THIS TIME AND DISAPPROVED COMMENTS HAVE BEEN ADDRESSED. SEE ELECTRONIC DOCUMENTS AND SEE EMAIL CORRESPONDENCE KAY
E-MailKay, Attached is the revised CO2 Form also containing statements about other (cleaning) chemicals and "no brewing equipment" Please confirm this revision satisfies all Haz Mat concerns and requirements, resulting in your release to CSFD [Rhonda and Dee] that they may sign the Permit Set as Approved, when the Permit set is returned to CSFD counter at RBD.

Subject: CO2 - Haz Mat Revisions / CB Potts Kay, Thank you for your review and conversation with Brad / McM Engineering. Please advise per below. Thank you Barry Spaeth Colorado Commercial Construction. Inc. o. 719 264 6955 From: Bradley Hake [mailto:brad@mcmengineering.com] Sent: Monday, June 16, 2014 9:51 AM To: Barry Spaeth; Smith Co Llc Cc: James C. Arrington III; David Barber; Douglas McIntire; Kyeager@springsgov.com Subject: Re: Mechanical Review: CB Potts Good morning, All. I just got off the phone with Kay Yeager at CSFD Hazmat. The exempt amount is under 100 lbs of CO2. Specifically, one 50lb DOT cylinder can be connected to the system, but not two. That said, a 2nd cylinder can be stored with the first to be swapped when the first is running low. The steps to get this cleared and the current plan released are: 1. Prepare a revised CO2 declaration form calling out a quantity of under 100 lbs.[Barry ] [Barry ] If this form is available on line, could you please advise where? Or, please attach a PDF of it on a return email. 2. Re-route the permit set with that form back to Kay. She noted that for today due to computer difficulties, she is not going to be doing plan review at the RBD building, but rather at the CSFD offices at 375 Printers Parkway.[Barry ] I can physically move the permit ap docs to 375 Printers Pkwy. Kay also asked that it be verified that the inventory of other cleaners, limited quantity chemicals, etc. be verified with the resubmission.[Barry ] [Barry ] Is there a specific Form that needs to be used ? If this form is available on line, could you please advise where? Or, please attach a PDF of it on a return email. In order to get back to the 750 lbs, all of the requirements that Kay's review raised will need to be addressed But that can be done after the initial permit is issued, [Barry ] ok and once it's worked out where to place the big tank. The two most viable options are either an outdoor enclosure, or in an added indoor closet that's ventilated per the code requirements of 1cfm/ closet s.f. floor area.[Barry ] Per advice just received from owner, the tank will be placed outside on conc pad surrounded by chain link and steel shed roof. Drawings pending from Architect. Kay, please advise all info that needs to be provided on this Drawing. If an outdoor enclosure is used, then no building modifications will have to be provided.[Barry ] see above If a closet is provided, then I'll add an exhaust fan to serve it - small ceiling fan ducted to a wall cap. Let me know if you need any other information. Regards, Brad Bradley Hake, NCEES

DisapprovedCARBON DIOXIDE GAS DETECTION AND ALARM SYSTEM Facilities shall declare the storage and use of small Insulated Carbon Dioxide Systems used in Beverage Dispensing. *** This facility proposes one 750 lb CO2 vessel therefore, it is required to comply with the 2009 IFC/IMC FOR ALL OF THE FOLLOWING 1) ventilation requirements for mechanical EXHAUST or 2) ventilation for NATURAL ventilation AND 3) provide an approved CO2 gas detection and alarm system in accordance with the following: a) A Listed (by an approved testing laboratory or organization) gas detection and alarm system that is capable of detecting and notifying the building occupants of a gas release that creates carbon dioxide vapors in excess of its Permissible Exposure Level (PEL) at 5,000 parts per million. b) The gas detection and alarm system shall initiate an audible alarm within the room or area in which the system is installed. Activation shall sound a local alarm to notify persons responsible for system operation of a hazardous condition in the area where installed. c) The automatic gas detection and alarm system shall be installed in accordance with the manufacturer's requirements and recommendations. Documentation shall be provided at the time of inspection. Note: Carbon dioxide is 1.5 times heavier than air. Vapors accumulate in low elevations, and in non-ventilated rooms not necessarily limited to the location of the container.
