Performance-based approaches for fire and life safety focus on achieving goals and objectives rather than meeting prescriptive requirements of the code. This approach has held the promise of allowing increased design flexibility since 2000. After more than 15 years, the performance-based approach now provides a viable tool to help designers realize the architectural and owner vision without compromising safety. Through a case study approach, this presentation will review four projects using a performance approach, and will examine how the process was used to attain the architectural vision.
