About this Book
Around the world, prescriptive building codes and fire safety standards are increasingly being replaced or supplemented by performance-based standards. This book discusses the implications in the industry to provide increased design flexibility, lower costs, improved safety, and even enhanced global trade.
The building fire performance evaluation procedures described in this book can be used with any code, standard, or regulatory requirements. The key feature of this publication is its aid to professionals who work in the building and other such industries to make better decisions concerning fire performance and to communicate more effectively with professionals in other disciplines working in this area.
