6/6/2014 FYI06/06/14 HM Plan Reviewer reviewed chemical inventory and CO2 amounts CO2 @ 60 lbs is less than 100 lbs which, when over 100 lbs, initiates admin ruling requirements for ventilation and gas detection. A GAS DETECTION SYSTEM IS REQUIRED TO BE INSTALLED WITHIN THIS FACILITY WHERE CO2 STORAGE & USE OCCURS. all other fertilizers, nutrients, and pesticides are below the permit amounts SEE ELECTRONIC DOCUMENTS FOR INVENTORY AND DECLARATION 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.

6/5/2014 FYI*****(STANDARD COMMENT) This project is: Bijou Wellness 2132 E Bijou St 119 Remodel Change of Occupancy Date of Plans: 5/1/14 You can access our web site for the latest fire department plan review comments: 1. From www.pprbd.org, select PLAN REVIEW then FIND PLANS next COLORADO SPRINGS 2. Scroll down to the correct address. You may then select APPROVED/DISAPPROVED to view comments associated with that particular project.
Attention(STANDARD COMMENT) CHANGE OF USE/OCCUPANCY It appears this project is a change of use or occupancy for this building. As such, the building must meet the current adopted fire code for its new use/occupancy.
Attention(STANDARD COMMENT) IMPACT TO EXITING AND/OR FIRE PROTECTION SYSTEMS Egress components and fire protection systems that may be negatively impacted by yoru scope of work will be required to comply with the currently adopted fire code. As an example, if your work increases the occupant load of a space, the existing egress components will be required to comply with the requirements of the new occupant load.
Attention(STANDARD COMMENT) CONSTRUCTION SPLICES You are strongly encouraged to have any splices that may occur during this project, reviewed by CSFD. Failure to do so, can result in coordination issues that could prevent a final inspection from being completed, thus delaying the issuance of a Certificate of Occupancy.
Attention(STANDARD COMMENT) FIRE EXTINGUISHERS PLAN REVIEWS DO NOT INCLUDE REVIEW OF TYPE, SIZE OR PLACEMENT OF FIRE EXTINGUISHERS. Fire extinguisher type, size and placement shall be in accordance with the requirements of the currently adopted International Fire Code and the current edition of NFPA 10. The general fire extinguisher requirement for commercial structures is met with a typical dry chemical fire extinguisher with a minimum of 2A10BC rating. If there are special hazards in this building there may be requirements for specific or different fire extinguishers and this should be discussed with the reviewer at Colorado Springs Fire Department. If the owner and/or occupant wishes to deviate from the fire extinguisher listed above, please contact your inspector and/or plan reviewer early in the project to avoid delays at the time of final.
Attention(STANDARD COMMENT) EXTENSION CORDS AND MULTI-PLUG ADAPTERS Power sources shall comply with Section 605 of the 2009 IFC, especially with regard to the use of extension cords and multi-plug adapters.

Attention(STANDARD COMMENT) INFUSED PRODUCTS Infused product processes involve some chemicals, equipment, and procedures that must be reviewed and inspected by CSFD Hazardous Materials personnel. Please be informed that this will be required at any time the business is in operation upon discovery. Some examples to keep in mind are butane, isopropanol, high pressure Carbon Dioxide and or Carbon Dioxide generators/burners/cylinders, hydrogen peroxide, sulfur evaporators. These are not a conclusive list, just some common items found. Please notify CSFD plan reviewer and/or inspector immediately of any infusing process occuring on this site.
FYI(STANDARD COMMENT) FIRE EXTINGUISHERS Fire Extinguishers shall be provided in accordance with Section 906 of the 2009 IFC. Install extinguishers in highly visible and accessible locations, never in a dead-end area, and always try to place them near an exit pathway or at an exit(s). Mount 4" off floor to a maximum of 5 ft. to the top of the fire ext. (HINT: About waist high is perfect.) "FIRE EXTINGUISHER" signs may need to be posted to properly identify where the units are located if they're not highly visible.
