Making Buildings Work for Your Community: Design, Refurbishment and Retrofit

This guide provides invaluable advice for any group or organisation embarking on the refurbishment of a building for community use.

Using illustrated real-life examples identified in the research stage, the guide offers an introduction to the design process and practical advice and top tips for creating the best possible community facility. The Glass-House was commissioned by the Asset Transfer Unit to undertake action research on the impact of design decisions on community building refurbishment and to produce a guide as a resource for communities.
