Why must the #Flat's gate be opened outwards which obstructs the path to the lift lobby?
Answer: Designed by #HousingAndDevelopmentBoardSingapore.,
Would it double the space of the exit path from the corridor to the stairwell allowing more families to escape quicker if the gate open inwards into the flat or slide
sideways to allow wider evacuation space? Would this new design prevent people from clashinginto each other from the bottleneck along the corridor?
How much time are saved for the millions of #HousingAndDevelopmentBoardSingapore.,dwellers in #Singapore.,?
Answer: Heaps of time.
Could this idea be used in the design of future #HousingAndDevelopmentBoardSingapore. #flats and #condominiums as one of the factors that result in
the sale of the apartments leading to huge profits for rich, powerful people; bonuses for management and staff;commission for Property Agents?
Answer: Yes, it can.
Imagine a flat has six hundred occupants, going in and out of the #flat at least twice a day, with the gates opening in the direction that does not block the direction
towards the Lift Lobby; you would be one step closer to the Lift Lobby; saving two seconds of each occupant time.
An estimate of three million #HousingAndDevelopmentBoardSingapore's flat occupants walking in and out twice a day, given two seconds of time
savings each trip; this would result in 3,333 of productivity hours saved per day for the nation.
