Better Buildings Partnership
The primary objectives of the organisation are to:
The organisation was established in 2015 by Louise Ellison and Sarah Ratcliffe. From the start, one of central activities of the Better Buildings Partnership was to create working groups that would explore shared challenges.
These groups included:
- Investing and lending.
- Measurement and reporting.
- Operations and technology.
- Property management.
- Occupier engagement.
- Market transformation.
BBP and BSRIA joined forces to develop the Soft Landings framework, a project delivery framework intended to deliver buildings that meet the needs of those who own and operate the completed buildings. It ensures the transition from construction to occupation is 'bump-free' and that operational performance is optimised.
