Fire Prevention - Plan Review Status

Plan review comments update every hour. Please allow sufficient time for new comments to load prior to contacting a plan reviewer.
 


We are in the process of transitioning to a new plan review and inspection database. As a result, the plan review and plan log status reports will change and may not be available for a period of time. Please be patient with us during this transition as we work hard to improve our processes and communication to our customers.

NOTE - THE NOTED 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 COMMENTS AND INCORRECT INFORMATION PRIOR TO RESUBMITTING.

 System plans must be picked up within 30 days. All system plans left longer than 30 days will be discarded as abandoned.

5/13/2021 FYI*****(STANDARD COMMENT) This project is: Torchys Tacos, 1358 Interquest Py, Suite 100: interior finish for new restaurant This plan review is based on the requirements found within the adopted Editions of the International Building Code, International Fire Code and the related Standards.
FYI(STANDARD COMMENT) IMPACT TO EGRESS AND/OR FIRE PROTECTION SYSTEMS Egress components and fire protection systems that may be negatively impacted by your scope of work will be required to comply with the currently adopted fire code. As an example, if your work increases the occupant load of a space, the existing egress components will be required to comply with the requirements of the new occupant load.
Attention(STANDARD COMMENT) CONSTRUCTION SPLICES You are strongly encouraged to have any splices that may occur during this project, reviewed by CSFD. Failure to do so, can result in coordination issues that could prevent a final inspection from being completed, thus delaying the issuance of a Certificate of Occupancy.
FYI(STANDARD COMMENT) FIRE EXTINGUISHERS - COMMERCIAL KITCHENS: 2015 IFC 904.12.5 A Class "K" portable fire extinguisher is required for kitchens equipped with wet chemical fixed fire suppression systems. They must be installed within 30 ft. of the vent hood in a location/direction leading to an exit. ATTENTION: Kitchens with existing 40B:C dry chemical extinguishers shall have them replaced with a Class K listed unit when they are due for either a 6-yr. maintenance inspection and/or a hydrostatic test. Install extinguishers in highly visible and accessible locations, never in a dead-end area, and always try to place them near an exit pathway or at an exit(s). Mount 4" off floor to a maximum of 5 ft. to the top of the fire ext. (HINT: About waist high is perfect.) "FIRE EXTINGUISHER" signs may need to be posted to properly identify where the units are located if they're not highly visible.
Attention(STANDARD COMMENT) FIRE EXTINGUISHERS NOT REVIEWED PLAN REVIEWS DO NOT INCLUDE REVIEW OF TYPE, SIZE OR PLACEMENT OF FIRE EXTINGUISHERS. Fire extinguisher type, size and placement shall be in accordance with the requirements of the currently adopted International Fire Code and the current edition of NFPA 10. The general fire extinguisher requirement for commercial structures is met with a typical dry chemical fire extinguisher with a minimum of 2A10BC rating. If there are special hazards in this building there may be requirements for specific or different fire extinguishers and this should be discussed with the reviewer at Colorado Springs Fire Department. If the owner and/or occupant wishes to deviate from the fire extinguisher listed above, please contact your inspector and/or plan reviewer early in the project to avoid delays at the time of final.
