The fire protection system shall be designed, fabricated, and installed by a Licensed or NICET Fire Protection System Contractor. The engineer shall provide specifications and diagrams to allow letting of a design-build contract for the fire protection portion of the project. The entire system design, material use and installation shall comply with FM Global Engineering requirements as a minimum. Simon Property Group s Insurance plan review group contact is Global Risk Consultants. Bill Cary : (480) The typical sprinkler system shall be a wet pipe system serving all areas of the building. Portions of the project that are unheated or exposed to freezing temperatures shall be provided with an automatic dry pipe type system complying with FM guidelines and NFPA 13. Glycol systems may also be allowed if all system equipment is located in areas accessible to service personnel. 3. Piping shall be fastened to the structural system of the building and concealed in areas having a suspended ceiling. Provide for seismic bracing where seismic zones, local codes, or FM Global requirements. 4. Drain piping is required at low points of piping systems. Drain down locations shall be extended to locations that are accessible to Mall staff or stubbed out of the building into an area that will not be subject to freezing or stain the finished surfaces. For dry type systems, drumdrips shall be installed against columns and out of usable space. 5. Each sprinkler zone will require a zone valve. Valve shall be provided with a flow switch and shall have its position monitored by the Mall Fire Alarm system. Install fire department connection valves in piping where required. Valves are to be kept to a minimum and shall not be provided for each tenant without permission from SPG. 6. Provide inspectors test connections in accordance with FM Global requirements and local regulations. Drains and test connections shall be discharged with minimum visibility to the public. All discharges shall be arranged to minimize damage to the building and finished site improvements. 7. Air compressors for dry pipe systems shall be complete with integral air filter, air dryer piped inline on discharge side of compressor, pressure gauge, pressure/limit switch, check valve, across the line starter and induction motor; all mounted on a steel base plate.

Provide a unit price for adding sprinkler heads in the common area to allow for aesthetic adjustments. 4. Provide a unit cost per hour for a technician to be on site during Mall Grand Opening hours. 5. In mall renovation projects, the design shall match the existing hazard rating where the mall is zoned with adjoining tenant spaces. In renovation projects where the mall common area is served from a dedicated zone riser, the new sprinkler design shall be reviewed for compliance with FM Global requirements for new construction with respect to Ordinary Hazard Group 2 requirements. An analysis must be prepared for SPG review to determine if the increased requirements are attainable prior to final design. D. FIRE PROTECTION FOR EXISTING SPRINKLER SYSTEMS 1. Whenever an existing sprinkler system is being renovated the integrity and reliability of the existing system must be maintained. Original sprinkler shop drawings shall be acquired through the mall manager/project manager. However, the sprinkler contractor must verify the existing sprinkler system in field. If the sprinkler contractor discovers a discrepancy from the original sprinkler shop drawings and actual field conditions, he shall note the discrepancy on his renovated shop drawings. 2. The hydraulic design criteria shall match the existing hydraulic design of the original sprinkler design. However, the design criteria must minimally meet requirements for an ordinary hazard group 2 occupancy, whether in a tenant space or common area of the mall. The latest site water flow data to be used for hydraulic calculations shall be obtained from Global Risk Consultants. 3. Factory Mutual approved materials for ordinary hazard group 2 occupancy must be used, including but not limited to sprinkler piping, hangers, sprinkler heads, etc. 4.
