Fire safety advice on office refurb in Old Street, London

Screen Shot 2018-02-27 at 13.01.57This involved giving a second opinion on the refurbishment of existing 5th floor and the extension of office area to 6th floor and the addition of a roof garden. I gave input to the architect’s fire strategy report and attended meeting with LFEPA and building control mainly on the difficulties of upgrading one of the existing stairs to form a fire fighting stair with fire main and lobby approach. There were also difficulties finding a route for the new rising and falling dry fire main. I was then appointed to prepare a report for the client covering these and several other means of escape issues which would clarify issues raised by the London Fire and Emergency Planning Authority.
