This job consisted of 1 stair core ventilated by a 1mtr square smoke ventilation pitched velux rooflight, with lobbies on the Ground, 1st 2nd, 3rd and 4th floors.
Each lobby had a damper and grille fitted to ventilate smoke into an assigned smoke shaft.
The control panel was wired back to an addressable fire alarm, which would trigger on smoke to open the damper on the fire floor along with the related skylight. This automatically cleared the communal escape routes of smoke.
