New Shop Drawing Program for Sprinkler and Fire Alarms

As of July 1, 2009, Fire Alarm and Automatic Sprinkler Shop Drawings will be required to be submitted directly to the Fire Plan Review section of the Mecklenburg County Fire Marshal's Office located in the Hal Marshall Center at 700 N. Tryon Street.

Our process will be as follows:

  • Provide one copy of each set with applicable cut sheets and hydraulic calculations for Automatic Sprinkler System shop drawings per NFPA 13. Alarm drawings shall include, but will not be limited to, all of the requirements set forth in chapter 907.1.1. Alarm systems shall be installed per NFPA 72.
  • Drawings may be transmitted by any means including FedEx, UPS or U.S. Mail.
  • Shop drawings shall be required to be submitted within 90 days of Building or Low Voltage permit issuance.
  • Installations, not otherwise connected to a permit set of drawings, shall be submitted when the sprinkler work involves the addition of 20 heads or more, change of density, use or the installation of any heads that may affect the original hydraulic demand. Alarm drawings shall be submitted when the work involves the addition of 5 or more devices, floor plan alterations (cubicles included), and any installations that impact egress or non-required systems.
  • A low voltage permit may be required from Mecklenburg County LUESA for most Fire Alarm installations.
  • NICET Level 2 or factory training required for all Fire Alarm designs. Copies of these certifications shall be required with all Fire Alarm plan submittals.
