This report details the implemented procedure to design a water supply and distribution network to provide hydrants at the headquarters of the Technological Institute of Costa Rica. The project includes the detection of the strategic points for installation of hydrants, the selection of hydraulic equipment required to satisfy the specifications demanded by the Fire Department of Costa Rica to fight fires and the sizing of the whole pipe work and relevant accessories required by the system. Besides, the volume and location of the water storage tank is established, the plans for viewing the different locations of the distribution of hydrants proposed are generated and the materials and labor required to execute the project are valued. As the final part, the project focuses on establishing the necessary maintenance routines to periodically monitor the correct functioning of the whole hydrants system designed. The design criteria used have as main reference point the international regulations NFPA (National Fire Protection Association) and national regulations such as the Technical Ordinances by the Fire Department of Costa Rica. Also for the realization of the planes, considerations established by the CFIA (Federated Association of Engineers and Architects) were taken into account. The project is developed in the Engineering Office of the Technological Institute of Costa Rica and it has the supervision of an industrial adviser and a professor guide
