This chapter explains lifecycle theory and how it links with adaptation before describing building performance and adaptation theory. From this point drivers and barriers affecting adaptation are detailed. The overarching social, environmental and economic factors are explained as a precursor to a discussion on the specific building attributes associated with adaptations. In this way a comprehensive overview of the theoretical framework in which adaptation decisions are made is provided.
