Vision 4 was commissioned through the Government Property Unit (GPU) to develop the Government Soft Landings Policy which was developed as a key part of the UK Government Construction Strategy.
The guiding principle of the policy is “the alignment of interest between those who design and construct a facility and those who subsequently occupy and manage it”
Vision 4 lead the development of the policy structure and output reports. A key part of this process was engagement with industry in seeking best practice, comment and communicating progress on the project.
The final output was the issue of the Policy Report and supporting Implementation Guidelines and programming aspects
