|Disapproved||DISAPPROVED: The following information and/or corrections are needed prior to completing a full plan review:
1) Add Plan Review # 2008-0722-FH-1 to plans
2) A fax form MUST be filled out with all submittals. They can be picked up at the front counter or I can email you a copy.
3) FYI: only 1 copy of plans is needed for initial review. I only need an extra copy to keep for our records during final signatures.
4) Provide a copy of CSU flow report with next submittal
5) Specify V-A or V-B type of construction
6) 1500 gpm is the minimum fire flow allowed.
7) Plans state that a private hydrant agreement is needed. This is true if the hydrant used to support this building is owned by someone other than the owner of this property. If required, the agreement must be approved and filed before plans can be signed. We need to see the agreement.
1) Review all redline comments and address each one.
2) Return ALL red lined plan sets for each re-review.
NOTE: The 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 and incorrect information prior to resubmitting. |
|FYI||*****(STANDARD COMMENT 3) HYDRANT PAINTING REQUIREMENT: Fire hydrants shall be painted in compliance with Colorado Springs Utilities color coding standards. By using these standards the emergency response crews are provided a quick way to decipher how much water is available from a specific hydrant. The gpm of the hydrant are determined by an actual water flow test, and it is imperative the testing and color coding is accurate. smc 9-07|
|FYI||*****(STANDARD COMMENT 4) ON SITE FIRE HYDRANT FLOWS:
PRIOR TO THE TIME OF FIRE FINAL INSPECTIONS, on all new construction sites, it will be the responsibility of the owners, GC, or site manager, to have all new and existing fire hydrants, and private water systems flow tested. Per the IFC, all hydrants are to be installed and in service prior to any construction.
**ALL HYDRANT TESTS SHALL BE CONDUCTED BEFORE ON-SITE CONSTRUCTION IS STARTED!!!
As with any new or revised fire protection system, the Fire Department will need to witness all tests to verify the system will meet the fire flow requirements established during the plan review process. If this test occurs without Fire personnel on site, it will be deemed unacceptable by the inspector and will delay the final fire approval. (IFC 2003, Chapter 1) RJG 1/06
Contact SEAN HIGBEE, CSU at 668-4595 to schedule an ACTUAL flow test of CITY OWNED/PUBLIC hydrants. Be sure to provide them with a CSFD plan review number to include with their flow reports.
