Abstract

There is a strong need for more efficient and more sustainable buildings. At present it is difficult to define the performance of buildings in an objective way to efficiency and sustainability. Goal of this project is to examine and to understand differences between different building rating systems Considering what makes a good building, results in multiple interpretations based on the different background, training and experiences of the people who answer the question about how good a building is. What is needed is a new integral design approach which enables to integrate the different aspects of green and intelligent buildings in a supportive framework during the design process. Especially the focus is on Multi Criteria Decision making within the design process and how to support this, so that the decisions about fulfilling ‘green’ aspects in the design are made transparent for all share holders within the design process.
