Climate Change Adaptation for Traditional Buildings

Some traditional buildings may become less able to cope with changing weather patterns caused by climate change. This Short Guide describes the key aspects of the external envelope of a traditional building that provide protection against the elements, and considers how these can be improved or adapted to increase a building’s resilience to extreme weather
events. It also considers the internal environment within older buildings, and how this can be managed to cope with changing environmental conditions.
