We provide various levels of design services for the development of fire sprinkler installation drawings, cost estimates, and specifications for all types of fire suppression systems. Our fire protection services can be contracted on several levels based on your specific needs. Our involvement with your project may be as simple as a list of recommendations or as complex as is required.
Our materials library is constantly updated with the most current product information available. We often evaluate several different design approaches before selecting the most economical system design. The considerations in designing the fire sprinkler system are:
- Cost of material
- Availability of the products
- Ease of installation
Many systems may require a survey, material data submittals, specifications, maintenance manuals, etc. This can all be part of our complete design package.
All hydraulic calculations are performed using the HASS® computer program. Calculations can be in either English or metric units. When designing a system, different piping arrangements and materials types are hydraulically evaluated. This allows us to determine the most efficient and cost effective fire sprinkler system.
Many contractors require a stocklist for fabrication. A complete material stocklist can be available with all projects.
Design costs are available on all projects. Send your project plans to our office and a design cost will be determined.
Need help with an estimate? We have a service that will help you evaluate the system design and assist you with the preparation of your bid. This can be as simple as verifying the sprinkler head count to as elaborate as determining the design criteria and providing a preliminary design layout complete with pipe sizing!
We keep our code library current with the Uniform Building Code (UBC), Uniform Fire Code (UFC), listings of most city codes and ordinances in Northern California, and we are on NFPA’s subscription service to keep all National Fire Codes (NFC) up to date.
Below are actual examples of our fire sprinkler drawings. All of these drawings are saved in Adobe® PDF file format. If you do not have the Adobe® Reader installed on your computer you may download a copy from the link below. Some of the drawing files are large, so they may take several minutes to download on a slow connection.
