The roof hatch is not just a square box on the roof. You need to consider what is the minimum size you can specify for safe use, how will it safely be operated by an end user and how they will access it? Is it accessed via a retractable ladder or fixed vertical ladder, and what are they accessing for? What restrictions do you have on site and how can you best utilise the space provided ensuring safe means of access?
