Improving the uptake of fire safety performance standards: the verifiers perspective

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

The choice of whether to adopt performance-based design to satisfy national building codes or regulations is now readily available in many countries. Societal expectations and widely differing geographical considerations guarantee that the technical content of regulatory requirements vary considerably; however, commonly experienced problems associated with the implementation of
performance-based design (PBD) have been recognised. Examining the verifiers’ perspective, further understanding of the problems associated with the PBD process may be obtained, assisting stakeholders to identify and relate to commonly encountered potentially problematic areas.
