Modification to an existing building

Question asked by alton.clarke on May 9, 2016

I am doing a project whereby there are putting in a new ceiling and new exposed HVAC ductwork in two Rooms where they have Rice Cooking operations in a Food Processing Plant. The old ceiling will be torn out and I am required to write a new performance spec for the fire sprinkler system. The areas currently have sprinklers but they will be rendered useless as the there will now be ductwork below the ceiling where there was none before. Questions:

1. What documents do I need to produce for the fire Protection contractor to do this work? I am thinking a drawing and a written specification. What needs to be shown on these document? Does anyone have any samples to show?

2. What will be the hazard classification of these areas? I am thinking ordinary hazard 1.
