With the development of modern technology, the high-rise buildings is steadily increasing, but due to various risk factors of high rise of the buildings, there is general concern about a large-scale loss of life and property in the event of a disaster. Since the existing Building Law and Fire Service Act does not comprehensively deal with the regulations on evacuation safety, it is necessary to provide detailed guidance on evacuation design. The purpose of this study is to propose guidelines that can be applied in the preparation of evacuation countermeasures for skyscraper buildings by supplementing legal standards based on specifications. Based on the performance-oriented evacuation design that was introduced in the 123-storied skyscraper, guide items are derived. This study aims to propose guidelines for the implementation of evacuation planning and disaster response training by reviewing effectiveness of the results of simulations and surveys of simulation participants.
