A Performance-Based Approach to the Fire and Life Safety Design of the New Calgary International

Presented by Peter Senez, P.Eng. Executive Vice President – Canada, JENSEN HUGHES

This presentation summarizes the development, application and implementation of a performance-based approach to design of fire and life safety aspects of the new Calgary International airport terminal, based on guidance in the SFPE Engineering Guide to Performance-Based Fire Protection. The design of the terminal was intended to provide seamless connectivity between building spaces, but created challenges from a security perspective and within a regulatory framework that relies on compartmentation and proximity to exits to limit the risk of fire spread and facilitate life safety. The regulatory and security challenges were addressed through development of a performance-based approach to fire and life safety and demonstration of performance relative the goals implicit to the Building Code requirements.

The success of this Project was achieved through effective application of performance-based design, based on the guidance provided in the SFPE Engineering Guide to Performance-Based Fire Protection, to achieve design and regulatory objectives. The performance of the alternative designs was achieved through use of appropriate analytical methods to demonstrate an enhanced level of safety relative to the Building Code requirements.

Early engagement of and continued coordination with stakeholders helped streamline the construction and commissioning process, and supported the successful and on-time completion of the Project.
