I’m working in the construction of 4-star hotel. The water storage tank is underground made from concrete and the pump room is located above the water tank. The designer specified the fire pumps to be vertical split-case type! In order to follow code, I proposed to install vertical turbine pumps instead of the specified vertical-split case.
The supervisor Engineer is insisting to follow the specification of the fire pump and pushing me to create an underground pump room in order to install the specified pump set.
Any recommendations to avoid this directive?
I have a bad flooding experiences with this this type of subgrade pump rooms.
