A two storey temporary hostel for families with all bedrooms at first floor.

Currently an internal and external stair at first floor.  Acceptable dead-end section to one wing before alternative available.
Occupier wants to extend the dead-end with six additional bedrooms taking TD in corridor to 17 metres.

Two solutions have already been put forward, an additional stair or a sprinkler system.
My question.  Is there a a cost effective mechanical ventilation system available that could compensate for the extended TD.

The outcome is that the client went to a second company who put forward a cheaper corridor ventilation system quoting standards relating to flats.  This included the availability of window exits from each bedroom.

Finally the client found a way to juggle the layout to provide an additional external stair.

I note you've found a way to juggle in an extra stair. However, picking up on window escape. My experience of this type of accommodation (Family hostel) is that locked window restrictors are fitted and by there nature make the window unsuitable as escape windows.

Plus, being family rooms, how does granny, baby and Jimmy with the broken leg from playing football deal with an escape via a window.  This escape window thing to me is a nonsense. For rescue ok but not escape.
