AbstractReports A, B, and C contain the on-site measurements pertaining to distance separations for three blocks of buildings which were surveyed in Metropolitan Vancouver. This exercise was useful in two ways: it revealed discrepancies in the actual and calculated distances and it served as the first documented test of the performance methods as applied in the National Building Code.
