Ref Code: FB2
Authors: H M Graves and M C Phillipson

Abstract1: As the built environment has an expected life of 20100 years plus, it is important that climate change impacts are considered for building stock being built in the coming decades. This publication includes technical assessments of potential impacts and adaptation strategies, based on the UKCIP98 'Medium-high' climate change scenario. Detailed analyses are given on the impact on buildings of wind, flood and coastal erosion, subsidence and soil movement, driving rain, durability and performance of materials, and on the construction process. A methodology is included for assessing climate change impacts, their significance and recommendations for adaptation.
