How do we best learn design, installation and inspection techniques? Repeated exposure to projects, designs, or input from others.
In next week's post we'll debut our first Design Challenge, where we'll reveal a small portion of a building with details. Sprinkler designers (of any age and any location) can propose how he or she would design the system for the proposed building.
Now, here's where installers, plan reviewers and inspectors come in - We'll then take the top few submissions and post them against each other in the following week for a full-on debate about the pros and cons of each submission. After a vote, the creator of the winning design will be revealed and featured on our site.
