Building for a Healthy Life

Building for a Healthy Life (BfHL) is the latest edition of – and new name for – Building for Life 12. It is a Design Code to help improve the design of new and  growing neighbourhoods.

BfHL covers 12 design criteria spread over 3 headings and is assessed using a traffic light system to determine the score of the scheme.

Independent and impartial Building for a Healthy Life assessments

We offer independent BfHL assessments which are undertaken by multi-disciplinary built environment experts. Our assessments are a great way of demonstrating that schemes meet quality thresholds included in planning policies or development briefs.

BfHL assessments can help identify areas of weakness and will outline what should be done to improve the score of the scheme.
