Lines and Dots

We had all pulled together and burned the midnight oil to make the State submission deadline for a new school project. Now, it was time to move forward with the construction documents to get them ready for bidding. We were looking at coordination issues, and we noticed that the sprinkler head layout on fire protection drawings did not really fit with the architectural reflected ceiling plan. It was not a matter of a missing head here and there. Instead, the sprinkler layout seemed to be for a different building. We called the fire protection engineer to alert him to the coordination issues. “I know,” he said of the fire protection plans. “Those are just lines and dots.”
