This work requires fundamental research and collaboration with government agencies responsible for developing regulatory policy, particularly for performance-based building regulations. Historically, building regulations have been developed in response to catastrophic events. In a performance environment, the aim is to develop regulations that proactively identify and address societal expectations for building safety and performance, resulting in a better allocation of resources focused on critical needs.
