Description

Better Places to Work is concerned with those elements of the design and development of workplaces that the planning system can influence. It explores issues around location, the public realm, architecture and linkages. It is based on the principle that well-designed, accessible and pleasant living and working environments are one of the key requirements for creating sustainable communities as set out in The Sustainable Communities Plan "Building for the Future".

The authors believe that it is important to get new development right, given the growth of the employment sector and that poor planning and design risk a return to some of the mistakes made in the past. Better Places to Work demonstrates that badly located and designed places of work are not only bad for the wider environment; they are also bad for business.

The book illustrates its points by taking in case studies of ten praised developments from around the country, including the Custard Factory in Birmingham and the Printworks in Clitheroe, and explaining why they are good. This title will be invaluable to architects, developers and designers alike.
