Concern & action: Space limitations

Impact of the measure on the physical space of the building, e.g. reduction of internal areas or doorways through the addition of insulation, or a new piece of equipment which takes up space.

Suggested actions

Before Implementation

At design stage, establish impact of measures on space, e.g. insulation thickness; new heating or ventilation system size; new cylinder size

During implementation

Check any changes to proposed measures during construction against agreed space requirements and assess whether impact on space increases or decreases.

After implementation

Provide feedback about unexpected limitations on space, to manufacturers, suppliers and specifiers for future reference.
