Aiming at designing extremely customized, mostly cost-effective and case-by-case solutions, Guidi & Partners has become a national well-known reference for Performance Based Design projects, of which the Fire Safety Engineering is a crucial step.
Performance based design aims at achieving given levels of safety according to the specific performance the single building shall be proven to have, in order to carry out the business activity and to satisfy the building user’s needs.
Possible application fields are any kind of building, regardless of their features or building complexity: one single room; a whole skyscraper where many and different activities are carried out; historical and cultural value sites.
The PBD (Performance Based Design) approach analyses the typical fire dynamics through Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) models.
Results of this engineering approach are:
Advantages of PBD approach:
