  • Cost to supply a priority demand valve
  • Aligning the sprinkler nozzles with lighting fixtures or HVAC
  • Abortive visits or callouts
  • Making good of finishes/decoration
  • Taking down ceilings
  • Bringing out hoses
  • Water authority permission when a direct connection
  • Electrical supply to the system
  • Alarm connection to the system
  • Provision of safety lighting during installation
  • Drilling a 54mm hole through plasterboard at the dry-line stage
  • Suitable shelf/cupboard for unit placement
  • Suitable welfare facilities during installation
  • Building works
  • Core drilling
  • Sprinkler nozzle placement at ceiling closure stage
