About this Unit
This unit describes the processes and techniques available to develop performance outcomes to the planning and building of structures required for bushfire protection in Australia. This unit provides advanced methods to address performance when considering bushfire protection measures. It also introduces the 'bushfire protection guidelines' and processes similar to that used in developing performance solutions under the National Construction Code. These include the use of event tree analysis, verification methods, consideration of climate change and the use of annual exceedance probabilities when developing performance solutions. Students are required to develop suitable measures through a performance solution for bushfire protection of a building.
