Abstract

Chapter 12 concludes this section by reflecting on how buildings can be designed in the first instance to maximise successful adaptation later in their life cycle. A method for rating 'adaptivity' using a star-rating schema is discussed and defined. Its application to adaptive reuse is explored in particular through the proposition that high values of design adaptivity lead to high values of adaptive reuse potential later in life when the original building function becomes obsolete. It is also argued that ultimate success is still dependent on the choice of functional change as much as latent conditions that underpin an effective conversion, and making the appropriate decision in this regard is crucial.
