Abstract

This paper introduces the ongoing developments in the Netherlands for the improvement of bureaucratic procedures regarding building permits. The Dutch Ministry of Housing, Spatial Planning and the Environment has initiated and supports a number of developments that aim to decrease the administrative burden for both citizens and municipalities. One of these initiatives is The Digital Dormer, which is a web site that allows citizens to design a dormer for their house and that instantly performs a range of tests to give detailed feedback about the legal and technical issues regarding the design. The paper briefly introduces the underlying technology used to build this application, a newly developed building information model. It then describes the functionality and implementation of the dormer web site itself. Finally, we look at future developments of this project, which will include its relations to other projects and to a separate site for the transparent procurement of small construction projects.
