Elliott Building - Decommission of non-code compliant Aeas of Refuge

Facilities Management recently engaged the services of a safety consulting firm to conduct a building code review of the stairwells presently signed as areas of refuge. The review concluded that due to changes in the building code and the installation of sprinklers systems in many of our buildings the present areas of refuge should be decommissioned and the signs removed. As a result, Areas of Refuge signage will be removed and the Emergency Evacuation Plans will be revised accordingly. The Paint Shop will be patching and painting as required September - December 2015 View/ Download Facilities Management Notice - Elliott Building Decommission of non-code compliant Areas of Refuge Contact/ Organizer name: Linda Boggs, Project Officer Contact/ Organizer email: lboggs@uvic.ca
