1.2 How to use this Verification Method
This Verification Method sets out twelve design scenarios that must be considered in order to demonstrate that a building incorporating one or more Performance Solutions satisfies the Performance Requirements set out in Table 1.1.
Each design scenario must consider one or more locations in the building that capture the range of reasonable possibilities in relation to the threat to safety. The level of safety that the building design achieves must be at least equivalent to the relevant Deemed-to-Satisfy Provisions.
All design scenarios applicable to a Performance Requirement must be assessed to demonstrate compliance with that Performance Requirement.
In many cases the location that is the most challenging for a particular design scenario will be easily determined. Where it is not easily determined, the particular design scenarioshould be run in multiple locations to ensure the most challenging location is modelled.
