Procuring Soft Landings services

Soft Landings

Guidance on how to procure Soft Landings published by BSRIA is primarily intended to help public- and private-sector clients and main contractors procure soft-landings services from their construction supply chains. BSRIA has developed the guide (BG 45/2013) with input by members of the BSRIA soft landings user group in response to clear trends in the use of Soft Landings.

Many clients and consultants do not fully understand the soft-landings process, and this guide will help them better understand what they are requesting in tenders and clients understand in more detail what steps are involved in the process.

Roderic Bunn, BSRIA’s manager of Soft Landings, says, ‘Soft Landings is open source, so anyone is free to pick up the process and use it. This guide will help clients be more specific about their requirements. It provides guidance for assessing tender returns that include soft-landings services and levels the playing field for consultants and contractors by making clear who should be responsible for doing what.’
