The core principles of Soft Landings

The 12 core principles that define a Soft Landings project have been published by BSRIA in an 8-page booklet, which is also available as a free download. The core principles have been written for construction clients and their professional teams to provide information about the processes for Soft Landings projects.

Soft Landings is a cradle-to-occupation process for the gradual handover of a new or refurbished building. A period of professional aftercare is planned for at the inception of a project and carried out for up to three years after completion.

This approach has become widely accepted, and its adoption can earn credits in the sustainable-management section of ‘BREEAM for new construction’. It is being adopted for Government procurement policy.
