Here's a start:

  • Qualifications and experience of the Designer
  • Qualifications and experience of the second person checking the design
  • Qualifications, experience and liability parameters surrounding the individual who approves the design for construction purposes
  • Local Building Regulations
  • Local planning approval process
  • Method of charging the store
  • Location of the store
  • Size of the store
  • Properties of the contents of the store
  • Designed rate of consumption of the contents of the store
  • Ambient temperature and humidity ranges
  • Local insolation
  • Overpressure release facilities and local ventilation; proximity to other buildings/structures/people
  • The input of the local Fire Authority's Fire Prevention Adviser
  • The input of the facility's fire indemnity insurance company
  • Local seismological records
  • Storage security
  • Building structure and its fire retardent properties, especially in light of the recent Grenfell Tower catastrophe
  • Etc.

Is use of gas (mains or LPG) banned in UK high-rises, do you happen to know? I seem to remember a ban coming in after an accident in the late 60s, when an explosion blew out a wall and the whole corner of the building collapsed.

Why does this cause me to think that this is the beginning of a CNN story that we will see in 10 years about a 30 floor residential building blown to bits.

If you need to come here to ask these questions, you are not the person to be designing this system.

If you have to ask about this implementation on a forum then you are not qualified to accomplish the task.

Find somebody that does this for a living, study their design,ask questions, learn ,then someday i would feel safe in your building.

Just what I was thinking....

  1. Do not place the LNG vaporizer in the basement.
  2. Do not light a gas grill in the basement while operating the vaporizer in the basement
  3. Do not light a cigar in the basement while operating the gas grill or the vaporizer in the basement.
  4. You are in over your head, be careful not to flood the basement when the fire starts.

Desire is not enough in this case. Hire a professional, we cannot teach you how to do this.
