This edition was published in March 2014 and was superseded by Soft Landings Framework 2018 (BG 54/2018) in August 2018

 

The Soft Landings Framework is a process for adopting extended handover and professional aftercare for new and refurbished buildings. The process starts at project inception and is designed to run alongside all  forms of procurement. It allows for a full programme of post-occupancy evaluation that the project team can use to improve a building's performance and make it sustainable over the long term. This 2014 edition contains minor changes and updates. A design stage checklist has also been added to bring the Framework into line with BG 45/2014 How to Procure Soft Landings. 

Soft Landings complements rather than duplicating existing procedures used by the construction industry. Specifically, it has been designed to be the underpinning chassis for environmental assessments like BREEAM and LEED, all forms of energy performance certification, post-occupancy evaluation (POE), building logbooks, green leases, and industry key performance indicators (KPIs).

Soft Landings comes into its own, closing the loop between design, construction, operation, feedback and into design again. As the title suggests, the raison-d'etre of Soft Landings is to provide better buildings and a more effective service to the client.
