Samenvatting

Introduction In the (Dutch) construction industry relatively little attention is paid to low-energy and comfortable housing. It is often limited to prescribed rules by the government. For low-energy and comfortable solutions beyond the minimum legal requirements in one’s own home, someone almost has to be an environmental ‘enthusiast.’ Many people don’t realise that a sustainable building offers besides environmental benefits also other important qualities such as improved health and comfort. Especially the last aspects are important for consumers. Therefore people should be informed about these ‘extra’ benefits of low-energy and comfortable building during for example the designing or buying process. On the one hand people get a more comfortable house (and life) and on the other hand it is positive for the environment and the future population. This paper introduces a project which aims to develop a consumer design support system which is based on combining an architectural design support system with building performance prediction software.
