Abstract

This chapter first discusses the state of the art regarding the concepts of adaptability and flexibility and the need for adaptable buildings. Then it presents possible benefits and sacrifices of typical interventions, The next section discusses ways to measure the adaptability capacity of buildings and includes both a long list and a short list of KPIs. The assessment criteria for adaptability are based on previous research by Geraedts and Van der Voordt, 2007; Remøy and Van der Voordt, 2007; Wilkinson et al., 2009; DGBC, 2013; and Geraedts and Remøy, 2014. The chapter ends with some suggestions for further research.
