Soft Landings in Practice

23 January 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


This talk will start with an overview of the Soft Landings process and will then look in detail at the Performance Gap from the perspective of balancing Architectural and M&E strategies. Using examples of key learning from a wide range of post-occupancy evaluations, the evidence will show a large number of scenarios where articulate and well-designed architecture would have removed the need of over-zealous services, or poorly considered controls.

The talk will help focus on design strategies which are well-conserved from the use and maintenance perspective and provide a balanced view of what constitutes good architecture and effective and efficient services, showing both good and ‘lesson learned’ examples for daylighting, ventilation, heating and cooling in non-domestic buildings.
