The elements of means of escape were undertaken to highlight on the study. Analysis for this research is based on observation and interview was being found during on site visit. Other than this, the calculation will be done to proof the improvement of implementation passive fire design that applied on case study. Based on finding and analysis of this study, it can conclude that most of design of means of escape that practice at high rise building is comply with building regulation that state on UBBL. However, some of practices still fail to fulfill the regulation. Other than this, the design for disabilities people also not provided.
