Overview

Soft Landings and Design for Performance (DfP) share a common goal: to embed a focus on performance outcomes in new build and major refurbishment projects. This guide, published jointly with the Better Building Partnership, explains how Soft Landings and Design for Performance can work together.

Soft Landings aims to underpin the delivery of better buildings by establishing the client’s key performance outcome requirements at the start of a project and ensuring the delivery team maintain their focus on those throughout the project from inception to completion and beyond. More information about Soft Landings can be found in the Soft Landings Framework and at www.softlandings.co.uk.

Design for Performance (DfP) was launched and managed by the Better Buildings Partnership. It is an industry-led scheme to enable new commercial office buildings or major refurbishments to set a base building operational energy performance target from the outset and verify its achievement, by measurement, after a year of full occupation. More information about Design for Performance can be found at http://www.betterbuildingspartnership.co.uk/our-priorities/measuring-reporting/design-performance.
