Transformation capacity is a measure that expresses the effectiveness and efficiency of altering the functional and physical characteristics of a building or its parts to meet changing needs and requirements.
At building level, transformation capacity reflects both technical and spatial aspects determining, for example, the feasibility and impact of functional building re-conversions. At assembly level, transformation capacity expresses the effectiveness and efficiency of reconfiguring to meet new performance standards.
Both reuse potential and transformation capacity are measures of the reversibility of a building. Transformation capacity is nevertheless put forward as sub-function of reuse potential; if an assembly can be transformed more easily, its reuse potential is higher too.
