How can we make buildings better?
Education. In my opinion many people who own or occupy property, be it domestic or commercial, are just not aware; not through any fault of their own. Assets will (especially with MEES and the ever increasing need to become Carbon Neutral) may soon become a "costly burden".
Those who own property (myself included) have done so as an investment for our later selves and later generations. I think by educating those of the changes, the industry and the benefits of increasing the standard of stock will only help the cause.
