Soft Landings helps to solve the performance gap between design intentions and operational outcomes. This performance gap can emerge at any stage in a project:
Soft Landings provides a step-by-step process for clients and their project teams to follow in order to avoid these pitfalls and deliver a better-performing product. It aims to create virtuous circles for all. No matter whether your project is attempting to achieve exemplary environmental standards, or is a simple extension or retrofit of an existing building, the Soft Landings culture can be applied to ensure outcomes match the client’s intentions.
BSRIA’s stated mission is “making buildings better”. Sometimes the industry likes to call them “green” buildings or “intelligent” buildings. This usually equates to a design intention, not the as-built reality. The reality is that irrespective of what label is used to define a building, what matters is how it performs in use, in energy terms and in business terms.
The Soft Landings approach is designed to give clients and their project teams a process to follow that will lead to a better chance of success. It is a change of culture as much as it is a change of process. Everyone involved has to share the ambition, and share roles and responsibilities, to make buildings tread more lightly on the earth and provide the right internal environment to foster occupant wellbeing and productivity.
