Purpose - Climate change continues to pose major challenges to those responsible for the management of built assets. The adaptation required to address long-term building performance affected by climate change rarely get prioritised above more immediate, short-term needs (general built asset management needs). This paper, thus presents results of an action research addressing climate change adaptation of selected social housing stock in the UK. Design /methodology/approach – The study adopts an in-depth participatory action research with a London based social landlord and integrates climate change adaptation framework and performance based model established through author’s previous research projects. Findings - A staged process for including adaptation measures in built asset management strategy is developed along with metrics to analyse the performance of the housing stock against climate change impacts of flooding. The prioritisation of adaptation measure implementation into long term built asset management plans was examined through cost based appraisal. Research Limitation – The research was carried out with a singular organisation, already acquainted with potential climate change impacts, vulnerability and adaptive capacity assessment. The process adopted will differ for similar organisation in the sector with different settings and limited working knowledge of climate change impact assessment. Originality /Value –. In addition to the practical results from the study the paper outlines a novel process that integrates resilience concepts, risk framing (to climate change impacts) and performance management into built asset management (maintenance and refurbishment) planning. Practical implications - The paper concludes with a 10 step process developed as an aide memoir to guide social landlords through the climate change adaptation planning process.
