Evacuation Diagram of a City Apartment Building

AUST  A ten-storey apartment building’s corporation manager approached Hendry to provide the necessary emergency plan and evacuation diagrams under AS 3745-2010 ‘Planning for emergencies in facilities’.  Corporation managers and unit holders must be aware that any building works occurring in the building that alters the information contained in the evacuation diagrams or emergency plan, requires the evacuation diagram to be upgraded and reissued expeditiously.

Our client requested the evacuation diagrams to be provided in A4 size and in landscape presentation, an example is shown below:

(Note: Various symbols and indicators on evacuation signs under the BFSR and Queensland Fire and Rescue Service (QFRS) vary to those nominated in AS 3745-2010 ‘Planning for emergencies in facilities’. If the client requested dual compliance with BFSR and AS 3745-2010, then BFSR symbols would take precedence and then followed by AS 3745-2010 for the symbols – indicators not included in the BFSR).
