Disapproved*****(STANDARD COMMENT 19) DISAPPROVED COMMENTS The following information and/or corrections are needed prior to completing a full plan review. Please respond, in writing on letterhead, to each of the following comments: 1. Encore Electric is not licensed to work in El Paso County as a fire alarm contractor - reference Pikes Peak Regional Building Code section 208. It appears license was sought in 2012 but was never picked up. See Additional Comment. 2. Codes/editions for the design of this system must be corrected as noted on the plans. 3. Delay in transmission of AC power loss is not indicated as required by 10.6.9.3. 4. Clarify the intent for the placement of smoke detection. It appears you are trying to comply with section 807.4.3 of the 2006 IFC for corridors and placement of clothing/personal effects, however it also appears lockers are present. Additionally, there are random smoke detectors within administrative areas 5. Main lobby area - ceiling heights are not declared and smoke detection is not indicated - there isn't a note even to explain if it is open to the next level. 6. Corridor 178 main level area B - please clarify intent of a 110 candella strobe in the corridor. 7. Elevator - there are no sprinklers at the top of the hoistway and therefore detection is not permitted at the top of the hoistway. However, sprinklers are in the pit, and detection is required in the pit - plans must reflect this accordingly. 8. Upper level ARea C - plans show ceiling height os 26-feet. Provide engineering analysis or modeling to show the spot smoke detectors will not be affected by stratification within this space 9. Provide a code study permitting single technology for signal transmission means. 10. Security doors and magnetically held open doors are not indicated on the plans but are shown on the matrix - please clarify. Also review the disapproved plans for additional written comments prior to submittal of new plans.
