RIBA Plan of Work Green Overlay supports Soft LandingsFebruary 2012

The Green Overlay includes a recommendation to adopt the BSRIA/UBT Soft Landings Framework

The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) has issued guidance on sustainable design to supplement its Plan of Work.

The Green Overlay contains a simple set of adjustments to each of the RIBA work stage activities to cover sustainable design. The Overlay also adds checkpoints to show what else needs to be done to support a more sustainable approach. The sections on project appraisal, handover and post-completion activities recommend adoption of the Soft Landings Framework.

The Green Overlay was edited by Bill Gething, Principal of Bill Gething: Sustainability + Architecture. Download the Green Overlay free from the RIBA bookshop.
