All Fire Sprinkler plans are designed in AutoCAD utilizing HydraCAD Fire Sprinkler Design Software. Finished
plans and the associated documents are provided in PDF (Adobe Acrobat) format, just drop them off at your favorite printer! No need
for you to have an AutoCAD professional on site, WDEI IS YOUR AutoCAD PRO!
By paying careful attention to architectural design and structural elements. and the location of mechanical,
electrical, and plumbing equipment, the fire sprinkler design team here at WDEI can save you time and money. Not only
are these drawings designed to get you approved (the first time!), they are also
designed to fit. Barring any
significant changes to the structure or requirements, these drawings can become "shop drawings" in a very short time.
Initial Design and Layout -
We follow the same procedure in preparing shop drawings as we do to prepare initial
fire sprinkler design layouts.
Finished fire sprinkler plans are field-ready for installation. Dimensions, elevations, sections, details,
and installation notes provide fitters with everything they need for a complete installation. Your field crew will spend
more time hanging pipe and less time interpreting plans.
Shop Drawings -
We use HydraCAD's integrated calculation program HydraCALC to quickly calculate and size any
type of fire sprinkler system. More than simply "plugging in numbers",
our fire sprinkler designers will insure that you get the
most efficient and cost effective fire sprinkler system possible. Reports are available in Adobe PDF format.
WDEI gives you an expert, unbiased evaluation of a planned
fire sprinkler system — before the building goes up or the system goes in. We offer expert assistance for building-code authorities
and fire officials. NFPA standards for installation of sprinkler systems have become more complex.
Technological advances in
fire sprinkler equipment and design have increased the need for municipalities to have qualified personnel reviewing fire sprinkler
drawings. Also, as communities, counties, and states adopt more stringent building codes, requiring more commercial buildings to install
fire sprinklers, the number of required reviews continues to increase. WDEI's fire sprinkler plan review is a convenient way to
outsource this vital community function.
- review of fire sprinkler drawings and hydraulic calculations
- verification of hydraulic designs and fire sprinkler system specifications
- evaluation based on applicable NFPA standards and any local codes that may apply
Real World questions require real world answers. WDEI will provide unbiased information you can really use
to resolve your Fire Protection issues. We not only understand the theory, we know how to apply it in the real world. We will make
certain that in the end YOU understand what YOUR fire sprinkler system will do for
Fast...Detailed...Accurate. Streamline your bid process with WDEI's fire sprinkler
estimating. Feel confident that your head count, pipe sizes and man-hours will reflect what it really takes to get the
job done right... the first time. We don't do "canned or square foot" pricing, each individual project undergoes a
preliminary fire sprinkler design to determine the exact number of fire sprinklers and pipe routes required.
Preliminary calculations are performed to predict pipe sizes. Then the material components required
for the project are then picked off to assure an accurate estimate.
Multiple fire sprinkler system designs are typically compared
to determine the most competitive design.
At the conclusion of this analysis the estimating team submits to you a written proposal indicating
the scope of work to be completed, clarifications and exclusions, and a quoted sum for the work to be performed.
Any fire sprinkler system designed by WDEI can be stocklisted for you. Finished plans will include all
main tags, line tags, and notes for your field personnel. As an option this information can be provided for you to do your own
