The City of Melbourne is committed to encouraging sustainable adaptation through its innovative 1200 Buildings Programme. This chapter identifies the measures typically adopted in sustainable building adaptation before describing ten sustainable building adaptations. The case studies highlight the rationale and objectives for each adaptation, their sustainable features, key challenges and the outcomes of adaptation. The remainder of the chapter compares the adaptations with regard to a number of attributes previously shown to be important.
