Chapter 11 describes how the type of adaptation intervention can be determined and presented using a 3D spatial model at any point in a building's life cycle. The trigger for intervention is argued as a combination of physical condition (x), space utilisation (y) and triple bottom line reward (z). Where these attributes are strong projects are likely to be retained or extended, but where they are weak projects are likely to be disposed or reconstructed. Over time the status of a project will change, and its 'xyz' coordinates are capable of being mapped in 3D space where the linear distance from the project's coordinates to decision 'hotspots' can be objectively measured to determine the level of confidence involved in such decisions.
