Performance Based Design Solutions

Due to the unique features of Themed Entertainment projects, it may be desirable to use Performance Based Design (PBD) options for meeting life safety goals and objectives. Performance based design includes the use of engineering tools, research, and methodologies to develop fire protection and life safety solutions that take into account the unique characteristics of the specific facility and the physical and mental capabilities of the occupants within, in the development of an overall design strategy with specific performance objectives.  JENSEN HUGHES is the industry leader in developing alternative solutions to prescriptive code requirements, using engineering analysis methods based on defined fire safety goals and objectives.
