Overview

Soft Landings is increasingly being recognised as an important process in helping to ensure the actual building performance in terms of energy consumption and occupant comfort closely matches the design intent.

In September 2012 the Cabinet Office formally announced the policy that by 2016 all centrally funded projects should be delivered in accordance with Government Soft Landings (GSL). There are some crucial differences between Soft Landings and GSL. This briefing note provides an overview of the GSL policy and a comparison with the BSRIA Soft Landings Framework. It was authored by Ashley Bateson on behalf of the BSRIA Soft Landings User Group.

This guide is also part of BSRIA's Soft Landings Set of 5 that also contains How to Procure Soft Landings (BG 45/2014), Soft Landings Framework (BG 54/2014), Soft Landings Core Principles (BG 38/2014) and Pitstopping - BSRIA's Reality Checking Process for Soft Landings (BG 27/2011).

Please note that this guide uses the old five stages as defined in BG 54/2014 Soft Landings Framework. It has not been updated to reflect the six Phases as defined in BG 54/2018 Soft Landings Framework 2018.
