SFPE Fire Safety Conference & Expo on Performance-Based Design

The application of fire safety engineering to develop innovative and robust fire and life safety solutions for the built environment has expanded considerably over the past 25 years. In many countries, this has been facilitated by the implementation of performance-based building and fire codes.

This biennial international conference provides a unique opportunity for those working in performance-based design (or those who want to learn more about it) to come together and examine current and future trends in building and fire regulatory systems. The program is designed by PBD subject matter experts and centers around case studies, looking at the applicable standards and performance-based engineering solutions as it relates to the design of the pre-selected case studies. Teams of SFPE members (drawing from SFPE's global chapter network) are formed months ahead of the conference and present their engineering designs and solutions.
