Presentation: Performance Based Design: A Case Study 

Performance Based Design presents many challenges to both the designer and the Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) to ensure that the proposed building can meet the needs of the client while still providing a building that will be safe for the people that will be using it. This talk will cover a building that was designed using a performance based design methodology. This will include the assumptions that were made about how the fire and people would respond as well as issues that arose with the AHJ before gaining final approval of the design.

PRESENTER: Dr. Bryan Hoskins  (Assistant Professor of Fire Protection & Safety at Oklahoma State University)

Dr. Hoskins is an Assistant Professor of Fire Protection & Safety at Oklahoma State University. He earned his BS and MS degrees in Fire Protection Engineering from the University of Maryland and his PhD degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Maryland in 2011 with an emphasis on building egress. His research interests are in evacuation, tenability, emergency messaging, and other issues related to human behavior in fire. Dr. Hoskins serves on technical committees for NFPA 101 and NFPA 72 as well as being the chair of the working group that has developed the SFPE Research Roadmap.
