These drawings complement Section 07840 Firestopping Master Specification. These are the joint drawings, webpage 3 of 3. Please follow the links in the boxes above or below to get from one to the next. These drawings are intended to show where firestopping is required. The areas to be firestopped are shown cross-hatched. The idea is that the specification text shall govern what materials and certification listings are to be installed - where. The drawings also complement one another as well as the accompanying text, beneath each drawing. Another significant concept embodied in this information is that the entire use of it in a project manual is intended to ensure, or at least increase the likelihood of equality in bidding.

07840 Drawing 21

07840 Drawing 21 - Fill in the Blanks. This has significant Cost Impact.

07840 Drawing 21: When your project is tendered, you may not know which deck vendor will be successful. Thus, you may not desire to get tangled up in stating these dimensions. However, these dimensions have a cost impact on the firestopping. This can cost SOMEBODY real money, when it is time to do the actual work. Pre-tender, you, Mr., Ms. or Mrs. Architect, you have the juice to demand and receive the dimensions for inclusion in the project manual. It is really quite simple. Firestopping goes by the square foot installed. How many square feet of firestopping per lineal foot of joint, single side is something that must be calculated and the cost allocated accordingly. Pre-tender the deck vendors want to be in your specification. Get the numbers, plug them in and you can get fair pricing on the firestopping. Firestopping is not cheap - so get the numbers please and communicate them pre-tender. If you just leave it all nice and vague, you or the building owner pay for it afterwards anyway.
