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.

This tenant requires a fire alarm system based on E occupancy class requirements. There are 2 options: 1 - this tenant must be separated from the other occupancies by rated construction OR 2 - the fire alarm system must be extended to the whole building. there is no record of plans being resubmitted to RBD/CSFD for a change to separated mixed use, therefore the fire alarm system needs to be extended throughout the building. 2.
