> Soft Landings Conference 2017
Soft Landings is an enhanced building delivery process that runs through the project from inception to completion and beyond, to help to close the performance gap between design intentions and operational outcomes. It provides a step-by-step process for clients and their project teams to follow in order to avoid pitfalls and deliver a better performing product.
This conference will help the clients and construction professionals to better understand the benefits of Soft Landings and how they could adopt it in their projects and includes:
Dr Michelle Agha-Hossein, Soft Landings Operational Lead at BSRIA, said:
“If you are a client or a construction professional who is keen to deliver sustainable and healthy buildings – this conference is for you!
In the past, delivering a new building on time and on budget were the only measures of success. Today – success is ultimately measured on how a building performs in reality and meets the end users’ needs. Soft Landings is the process that runs through a project from inception to completion and beyond to ensure the final product performs as originally intended and meets the end users’ expectations. If Soft Landings is adopted properly – there is no reason why a building should suffer from performance gap.
This conference will feature a range of different practical examples to show how projects benefited from Soft Landings. You will hear from an investors’ point of view as well as case studies from the clients and designers.”
