Stair landings - when to include as MVP

Andrew Nixon

The standard states that when a stair landing is at a level of a floor and provides access to an adjacent Space Classification on that floor that it is not part of the MVP (as shown in illustration 13b). But illustrations 13a, 13d, 35b-35f, and 36b-36f all show this not to be the case. Is this condition only true on long stairwells where the landing breaks up the long run of a stairs? Or what specifically makes the landing not part of the MVP?

Thanks for your response.

Hi Andrew,

The intent is that this rule is only applicable to intermediate stair landings.
