WAY! . . . . Look no further than the new San Francisco Public Utilities Commission Headquarters to see the first multi-story, two-hour, fire rated glass stairwell. The two-hour glazing is manufactured by SAFTIFIRST, and the building designed by KMD Architects. The glass enclosed stairwell is effectively located near the main entrance to enhance daylighting and views. The structure achieved a LEED Platinum certification. When is the last time a two-hour emergency stairwell did that for your design?
