CORRECTION OF FIRE CODE DEFICIENCIES, GOVERNMENT HOUSE, ST. AUGUSTINE

Category
2nd Floor Egress February 12,.1985
Item No. 1. Northwest corner laboratory areas no approved egress
access existing northwest stair is unprotected in parts of its
exitway and has no direct access to the exterior, and a possible
second means of egress is through an unprotected stair and
passageway.
Recommended solutions:
A. Provide opening through exterior wall of northwest stair at
landing between first floor and basement just below exterior
grade (there is an existing window on this landing). Provide
areaway and stair to existing grade. This will entail cutting a
21" steel beam shown on the existing drawings which an
engineering analysis shows to be redundant if minor shoring
support is done prior to the cutting.
B. Enclose the stair at first floor level with a one-hour labeled
door and frame at the auditorium and a one-hour rated partition
with a labeled door and frame to separate the stairwell and the
rest of the floor to the west.
C. Provide a one-hour rated door at the bottom of the stairwell in
place of the existing hollow metal door and one at the top of
the stair. (These doors would be of low priority as the
existing door is the equivalent of a rated door lacking only
label).
D. Provide emergency lights and exit signs throughout the stairwell
as per code requirements.

Item No. 2. Second Floor Library Seminar Room, Suite 206 and all

associated rooms at the southwest corner of the building have no

approved egress. The current secondary escape route is through a

4'6" high door and through an unprotected open stairwell which

discharges into an unprotected first floor area before reaching the

exterior.

Recommended solutions:

A. Cut a new full size door opening from the seminar room and

extend the existing lookout gallery corridor as necessary to

provide a landing at the door opening at floor level and non-

combustible stairs to the gallery floor level five feet below.

This would entail cutting through a 12" steel beam which

supports the library ceiling structure. This beam can be re-

supported by small steel columns to the existing floor beam.

The steel structure supporting the library roof will have to be

modified to permit raising the gallery roof into the present

truss.space to provide the required headroom.

B. Cut an opening at the end of the gallery and install a new non-

combustible stair and an enclosed passageway with door to

laboratory as shown in sketch plan This will provide a

one-hour fire protected passageway from north to south on the

second floor west side of the building which would be an

extension of the existing southwest stair and be a common

atmosphere with this stair.

C. Replace the existing wood stairs from the gallery level to the

concrete stair landing at the level of the library floor with a

non-combustible structure.

D. Enclose a vestibule outside of the current stairwell in the

library area and replace the existing plywood wall with a one-

hour rated assembly and a rated door to enclose this stairwell

at the library level.

E. At the first floor level, permanently seal the existing opening

to the east leading to auditorium stage. Remove existing door

to passageway, seal opening and install a new door to the west

which swings on the left hand side. Close the opening in this

corridor leading to the theatre dressing room area. Replace the

existing door in this area into the stage with a rated door and

frame assembly. Remove the existing masonry wall between this

area and the main passageway. Replace the two existing walls

shown on the drawings with new one-hour assemblies or bring

existing partitions up to a one-hour rating and install new

rated door and frame assemblies in all openings in this

passageway. All these items together will then produce a rated

stair corridor on the second floor connecting with an existing

rated stairwell providing egress from the corridor to the

exterior.

F. Provide emergency lighting and exist signs in the passageway and

stairwell as per code.

G. Mark exit level clearly to prevent occupants from going to

basement in search of another exit discharge.






Item No. 3. Provide all doors into exitways with approved self-

closing positive latch hardware.
