Building for Life

Our Building for Life training helps people to use Building for Life 12 – the Government endorsed industry standard for well-designed homes and neighbourhoods which invites local communities, local authorities and developers to participate in a conversation about creating great places to live.

We have carried out many independent Building for Life assessments for local authorities, house builders and Registered Social Landlords. Our training involves the practical application of Building For Life 12 through site visits to a completed housing development followed by a facilitated workshop, using the Building for Life 12 questions as a framework to assess the quality of a housing project.

The Building For Life 12 document is available here.
