Buildings are designed to respond to social and/or business needs and they inevitably have social, economic and environmental impact. This series of guides is intended to assist clients to ensure that the influence at all three levels is a positive one.
The overall aim is to maximise the long-term value of a building in meeting the needs, requirements and aspirations of users and the wider community as well as maximising the positive impact on the environment.
There are four publications focused on school buildings, offices, private sector housing and social housing. There is some commonality between the publications but each has a sector focus, sector specific case studies and referencing to assist in delivering best practice.
