According to the Fire Sprinkler Initiative, including fire sprinklers in newly built homes are a “win-win” decision for developers, but why? A residential fire sprinkler system isn’t just protecting you and your home; it protects your entire community from the wreckage of a residential fire. In reality, a residential fire sprinkler installation is a win-win for everyone involved, from the land developer and the builder to the homeowner and his or her neighbors.
Residential home developers who use home fire sprinkler trade-ups are rewarded with a large pay day: they save money on municipal building expenses, enjoy lowered construction costs, and take advantage of significantly reduced development costs. The advantages of the trade-up, however, only work when all the buildings in the development are built with home fire sprinkler systems.
What are some options for developer trade-ups? First, you will need to meet with local fire and code officials before deciding on a plan for development and finding out what is available to you. Developers save a lot of money on their construction costs by using home fire sprinkler trade-ups that include increased hydrant spacing and street width reduction. Additionally, when a trade-off is used, an expanded water supply may be unnecessary as fire flows are also reduced.
