With our years of on-the-ground expertise, FFPC has the expertise to create color-coded designs for sprinkler systems and emergency lighting that integrate smoothly with electrical, plumbing and other system designs.
Most of our clients require a quick drawing for sprinkler system permitting, followed by fully coordinated installation drawings. We assure all projects undergo the processes below. We have developed efficient forms and methods of tracking all information.
During this phase, our experienced consultants will acquire and examine the following:
o Set of contract documents and specification
o All required AutoCAD files
o RFI Log
o Current drawing log
o Structural shop drawing
o HVAC shop drawings
o HVAC – VAV Box submittals
o Electrical – light fixture submittals
o Sub Contractor list – Contacts, Phone Numbers, Email Address, etc.
o Any other necessary information
Adept at overseeing the administration of projects, FFPC can help to “lighten your load” by submitting an “Information Request” and drafting any required letters or code information that can be forwarded to the General Contractor.
After thoroughly examining all details of your project, we work with you to develop a list of all materials and requirements for the project.
In this phase, we overlay the following information, organizing it into an easy to read drawing. Afterwards we examine various fire system designs to determine which will be the easiest to install and most cost effective.
Architectural Reflected Ceiling Cad Files
• Ceiling elevations
• Ceiling Types
• Room Names and Numbers
• Ceiling Profile Lines
Structural Cad Files
• Top and Bottom of Deck Elevations
• Locate all structural members.
• All Beam Sizes and elevations
Plumbing Cad Files
• Add top and bottom of pipes.
• Locate all applicable pipes.
HVAC Cad Files
• Locate all Duct
• Add Top and Bottom of Duct
Electrical Cad Files

• Locate all cable trays
Our consultants thoroughly examine every drawing before released to ensure that all of the plans adhere to project specifications, as well as applicable codes and requirements from authorities with jurisdiction.
Mobile Work Stations
A complete mobile work station for the survey of existing projects. In most cases the entire fire system project is designed and hydraulically calculated before we leave the site.
Project Consulting & Coordination
By closely following the evolution of the project, we ensure that sleeves are not missed, milestones are achieved promptly and potential changes orders are not overlooked.
“On the Ground” Consulting
Our consultants are available to your Field Foremen to answer questions about our designs or code issues. Job site meetings arranged at your request.
A full color overlay with all trades detailing potential conflicts, as well as conflicts that may exist between other trades. This unique feature has proven to be invaluable on projects because it allows better project coordination. Many General Contractors tend
to be repeat customers because of this tool. At FFPC we are known for our ability to produce a coordination drawing, which can be easily followed. This document, with your title block, can be displayed in the project trailer to be referenced by all trades and used to
resolve field coordination issues.
