This course is a continuation of plumbing and fire suppression systems principles and then transitions into the system design, layout and specification concepts of plumbing and fire suppression systems. The plumbing systems components to be examined include water treatment, heating and pumping equipment, plumbing fixtures, plumbing specialties and plumbing piping, and installation materials. Design standards and variations will be discussed using plumbing codes and master specifications. The fire suppression systems components to be examined include standpipes and hose systems, gaseous fire suppression systems, wet sprinkler systems, pumping equipment and fire suppression systems piping, and installation specifications. Design standards and variations will be discussed using NFPA codes and master specifications. The architectural engineer’s responsibilities in design and specification writing will be emphasized through examples of construction document components, including plans, details and specifications.
