Building adaptation has a significant impact on sustainable development. There are various aspects of building obsolescence that affect the quality and performance of the building after its useful lifecycle, which include reduced environmental, economic, functional and social performance. Timely and effective building adaptation of the buildings which are facing obsolescence can extend its effective lifespan and this can provide considerable economic, environmental and social benefits, making it a sustainable alternative to demolition and new construction. This paper reviews different methods of building adaptation, techniques to find out the potential structures for adaptation which can reduce the negative impact on the environment. This paper also seeks to explore tools that can be used to analyze the building lifecycle and assess its sustainability index.

Keywords: Building obsolescence, Building Adaptation, Sustainability, lifecycle assessment tool, sustainability index
