The 20 Building for Life criteria embody CABE’s vision of functional, attractive and sustainable housing. New housing developments are scored against the criteria to assess the quality of their design, and CABE have asked TransForm Places to be their regional partner in promoting and supporting Building for Life.
To this end, we offer training and support for anyone interested in using Building for Life, be it a Local Authority compiling their AMR, or a private developer wishing to raise the bar on good design and ensure that their scheme has what it takes to be exemplar. To find out more, visit www.buildingforlife.org and start learning how your organisation can make a difference, or contact us for further information and advice.
As CABE’s regional partner for promoting Building for Life, TransForm Places can give advice and training, help with your assessments, advise on your design team, and point you to examples that set standards to aspire to.
