This webinar teaches participants how to identify common mistakes when reviewing fire protection system design drawings and submittal plans. Such a review should look at the major aspects of the design, such as sprinkler spacing, to confirm compliance with the design intent and all applicable codes. The mistakes most commonly found include trapped sections of sprinkler piping, unacceptable points of discharge, sprinkler obstructions, improper restraints, inaccurate hydraulic calculations, and inaccurate occupancy classifications and design densities.
