What is a Performance Solution, with Laura Terrnova, Deemed to Perform Consulting [NCC Series]

View descriptionShare

Hello! This is episode 290, and in it, I’m continuing my conversation with Building Surveyor, Laura Terrnova, from Deemed to Perform Consulting. We’re discussing Performance Solutions: what they are, and how they’ll impact your project and approvals.

This episode is part of a special series on the National Construction Code, and NCC 2022.

If you haven’t listened to Part 1 of my conversation with Laura in Episode 289, be sure to do that first, as this one will make a lot more sense once you do. You can find that by heading to

In this episode, we jump into the detail of Performance Solutions. Laura helps us understand more about what they mean, what might trigger the need for them, how you’ll need to go about acquiring them, and who will need to be involved.

For anyone doing a custom project, it may be very difficult to do a fully Deemed to Satisfy approval process. And you may also seriously limit your design, material and construction options if you insist on following a fully Deemed to Satisfy pathway.

So, understanding Performance Solutions will be super helpful for you to demystify what they are, and how to shape your project and project team to accommodate them.
