Sprinkler Retrofit

By now, we’ll assume you understand we’ve done a few of these. Everything in this section is to display experience and diversity in each condition. No two projects are alike, of course. This project is no different. In this case, the cause is not relevant. What is relevant is the extent of codes improvements necessary to bring this building back on line. This project, other than the routine characteristics of fire, required significant codes improvements to attain a permit. The most significant was retrofit sprinkling of the building within the existing framing design. We work with a number of sprinkler contractors during the planning phase. We are able to bring them in early and provide CAD drawings quickly to allow them some advantage in doing their job efficiently and moving the permit forward in a timely manner.
