                                                    Based on the Wind Analysis, it
                                                    was recommended to provide
                      Openings            Openings  through and through openings for
                                                    Refuge Floors. This enhanced the
                                                    wind flow between the wings of
                                                    the Proposed Building. The
                                                    ven la on rates also increased
                                                    because of the wind movement
                                                    in between the wings.

                                                    outs also improve the wind flow
                                                    in and around the buildings.
