I am dealing with a building renovation and the existing condition that has been giving the design team fits is, the elevators open directly adjacent to a stairway. NFPA 101, 9.4.7 indicates this is a major no no. The book doesn't provide any reason why or what this provision is suppose to accomplish Appendix A skips right over it! Anyone have any insights or have dealt with this?
