Our Design for Future Climate, Adapting Buildings programme has produced evidence on how buildings can be made ready for climate change.
This report analyses the opportunities and challenges facing designers in adapting buildings for a changing UK climate.
This industry-led report, ‘The business case for adapting buildings to climate change: Niche or mainstream?’, is mainly aimed at business designers but is also directly relevant to the construction industry and to policy and regulation makers.
It looks at the emerging market for building designers preparing buildings for a changing climate and at the opportunities and challenges they face.
The report is the culmination of the Design for Future Climate competition that started in 2010. See here for more details and reports
