Many of the Deemed-to-Satisfy (DtS) Provisions in the National Construction Code (NCC) are driven by the fire safety objectives of the code. When compliance with the DtS Provisions is not feasible, not cost effective or competes with the design intent, a Performance Solution can provide an alternative methodology to achieve compliance with the NCC.
Performance Solutions can be used to address any deviations from the NCC DtS Provisions, including the structure, amenity, waterproofing and fire safety. This note focuses specifically on Performance Solutions associated with fire safety matters and how they can be used to facilitate flexibility in design, cost efficiencies and environmental sustainability.
