Chapter 8 Performance solutions

A performance solution directly addresses the performance requirements by using one or a combination of the four assessment methods available in the BCA.

A performance solution is unique in that is that there is no obligation to adopt any particular material, component, design factor or construction method.

An approval authority may still issue an approval if it differs in whole or in part from the deemed-to-satisfy solution described in the BCA if it can be demonstrated that the design complies with the relevant performance requirement.
