Mary Mackillop, Nundah QLD

Mary Mackillop School in Nundah Queensland


Fire Engineering (Performance Solution)


This existing building, constructed prior to the introduction of the BCA, comprised four storeys, and all levels were served by two exit stairways. Both stairways were approachable from inside a common corridor at level 2 to level 4. The common corridor served four classrooms. The length of the corridor was approximately 36 m, with open-able windows. The building certifier identified two non-compliance issues; open stairs from ground floor to top level and doors from office/store were proposed to open directly into the stairway. FCC resolved the issues by implementing Transitional Provisions under Building Act 1995.
