A performance approach presents an objective that must be met. Examples of performance approaches to code requirements include a maximum permissible design heat flow INFLUENCES ON THE DESIGN PROCESSâ•…11 through a building envelope, a minimum design rainfall that can be safely drained from a building roof, or a defined wind speed that will not damage a roof construction. Some primarily prescriptive codes offer performance “options” for compliance. This is especially true of energy codes and for smoke control requirements in fire protection codes.

Examples of design criteria might include the following: • Thermal conditions will meet the requirements • • • • of ASHRAE Standard 55. 7 W/ft2. The building will achieve a LEED® Silver certification. Fifty percent of building water consumption will be provided by rainwater capture. Background sound pressure levels in classrooms will not exceed RC 35. 4╇ METHODS AND TOOLS Methods and tools are the means through which design intent is accomplished. They include design methods and tools, such as a heat loss calculation procedure or a sun angle calculator.
