Low return temperatures are a key characteristic of a well-designed and well-commissioned system!
Soft Landings refers to the continuing involvement by designers, builders and commissioning specialists after a building reaches practical completion. The later stages of a Soft Landings campaign should include the following:
Enables operators to spend time on understanding interfaces and systems before occupation.
Calls for continuing involvement by the client, designers and construction team, to maximise the benefit from experience gained and occupant satisfaction surveys.
Years 1 – 3 Extended aftercare:
To close the loop between design expectation and reality, and complete the virtuous circle to the benefit of future projects.
A return temperature of 40°C should be maintained throughout the year, which means that continuous monitoring and regulation is required by the building’s operator.
It is important that sytem elements be tested and optimised during all seasons of the year, so that the building energy systems continue to provide good performance throughout.

SAV have put together a CIBSE-accredited CPD Seminar, which explores the main issues arising from a 70/40 approach to design. The agenda for this is given under the CPD Seminars tab further along this website. The 70/40 method can be expected to have far-reaching implications, and discussions which are a normal part of each Seminar will sharpen your insight into developments in this field.
If you would like to explore the potential offered by the 70/40 method to any building services project, please feel free to provide some information via the Contact Us page, or by phone / e-mail. We would then assess how best to develop the ideas further, either by CPD Seminar, round table discussion, site visit or other communication.
We look forward to hearing from you.
