This project was commissioned by Ove Arup & Partners. The main goal was to develop an evaluation system similar to NFPA 101A for Australian healthcare facilities. This goal was accomplished by adapting NFPA 101A to the Australian situation, adding new parameters, using meetings to solidify values, testing values, creating a computer tool, and writing training documents. Arup will continue to develop and trial the evaluation through its work with healthcare facilities both local to Melbourne and nationally, throughout Australia.
