Although more than 7 years have passed since the tragic shooting at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida, questions remain about the “design, unpermitted renovations, and code enforcement” there.  A recent New York Times article looks at the ways in which egress may have been impacted:

“Patrons scrambled for a way out of the darkened disco, where some windows, crime scene photos show, had been covered and blocked as part of a conversion from a restaurant to a nightclub. The building’s owner has said the club had six exits. But two of them led to a closed-off patio that documents indicate had been added without a permit after the club opened. Two more opened out to an area surrounded by an 8-foot fence that had also been erected without a permit very close to the building.”
