The Building Code outlines minimum requirements to achieve safe exiting of occupants from a building, including maximum travel distances to an exit, exit capacities, and fire separations of exit facilities. However, with today’s complex designs, unique conditions may require the need for alternative exiting strategies.
MGA will assist our clients in the development of alternative exiting strategies, including timed egress studies that can provide safe and effective exiting from a building. The strategies will be structured around the features of the building, the profile of the occupants being evacuated, available fire protection system protection, and the underlying intent of the Building Code’s exiting requirements.
