Many factors can have a positive inﬂuence, in that they promise to increase or enhance the opportunities for adaptation. So, in characterising the available supply of candidate buildings for adaptation, it is essential to: • • • identify all negative factors for modiﬁcation or elimination target the positive characteristics for promotion and exploitation recognise those issues that have largely neutral effect. The general viability of adapting a building to support new uses will depend on the degree to which the negative characteristics and constraints might be overcome on the one hand, and the positive characteristics and opportunities might be enhanced and exploited on the other hand.

It must be remembered that this is a generic list of key physical characteristics, and may not include all of the relevant characteristics that interact, and need to be taken into account, when assessing the viability of a particular refurbishment project. 1 provides a basic tool for proﬁling the key supply-side characteristics of a candidate building for ‘change of use’ adaptation, for both the initial ‘as found’ state and the possible set of ‘future’ states after conversion.

The performance requirements: the interface between supply and demand, matching the set of physical provisions with the set of operational requirements. The decision procedures: the means by which the use viability, physical viability and ﬁnancial viability of alternative options for change may be assessed.
