Abstract
The wood products industry wants to expand its market share in non-residential buildings. This is a challenging goal because building codes exhibit a bias against the use of wood products, particularly in the construction of non-residential buildings. The move towards adoption of performance-based building codes offers the promise of eliminating such biases. However, in order to be prepared for the introduction of performance-based codes, architects, engineers and building code officials have pointed out the need for engineering tools to assess the fire performance of buildings. This five-year project was initiated to develop fire-safety design tools for non-residential wood-frame buildings, and to foster development and delivery of educational programs to train students and practitioners in performance-based fire-safety design. In order to achieve these goals an NSERC Industrial Research Chair in Fire Safety Engineering was established at Carleton University in March of 2001. This report summarises the progress towards these goals made by the Chair in his first year of tenure.

Abstract
Par l’entremise du programme de relance économique du Canada de 2009, le gouvernement fédéral vise à financer des projets de démonstration à grande échelle de l’utilisation innovante de produits du bois dans la construction non résidentielle (telles que la construction d’écoles, de résidences supervisées, de commerces de détail). Ces projets de démonstration mettront en évidence les utilisations innovatrices du bois dans les applications non résidentielles ainsi qu’un accent sur les bénéfices environnementaux de l’utilisation du bois, ce qui facilitera le développement et l’expansion des marchés qui sont de plus en plus sensibles aux considérations environnementales. La démonstration de la faisabilité de ces projets servira d’étude de cas réels permettant d’effectuer un transfert technologique aux professionnels tels que les architectes et les ingénieurs impliqués dans la construction de bâtiments non résidentiels en bois.
