French case study: design an energy-efficient and fire safe building. Final report presented at the 10th International conference on performance-based codes and fire safety design methods, November 10-12, 2014, Gold Cost, QLD, Australia

Abstract : The present study is conducted in the frame of the 10th International Conference on Performance-Based Codes and Fire Safety Design Methods. It deals with the case study proposing a building and setting a few specifications. Our approach is original since we adopt a performance based approach in both energy efficiency and fire safety. Indeed, both studies are conducted in parallel. There are three main results. Firstly, the present study demonstrates the feasibility to adopt such a combined approach. Secondly, it shows the possibility to use the same technical equipment (double skin façade) to ensure dual roles, both for energy efficiency and in fire safety. Thirdly, the study proposes an alternative to solutions relying only on technical measures to ensure energy efficiency, thermal comfort and fire safety. The final solution is based on a combination of technical and organizational measures.
