Survey Results: Perceptions of PB Building Codes and PB Design

In July, we launched a comprehensive and somewhat technical survey to enable us to understand the varied perspectives about performance-based building codes and performance-based design. Many thanks to everyone who provided thoughtful input through this survey tool.

We received over 100 complete responses, primarily from U.S.-based professionals, and have compiled some preliminary results for general consumption. We recommend beginning with the Summary Results document, which provides a good high-level overview of the results. More granular detail can be found in the Full Results document for those seeking to dig a bit deeper into each question. The Free Responses document offers a compilation of all of the comments provided by respondents at the end of the survey and offers some excellent insight.
