Abstract

The research project "ICT for whole life optimisation of residential buildings" (ICTWLORB) developed and tested the whole life design and optimisation methods for residential buildings. The objective of the ICTWLORB project was to develop and implement an ICT based tool box for integrated life cycle design of residential building. ICTWLORB was performed in cooperation with Swedish and Finnish partners. The ICTWLORB project defined as a premise that an industrialised building process is characterised by two main elements: a building concept based approach and efficient information management. Building concept based approach enables 1) the product development of the end product, 2) repetition of the basic elements of the building from one project to others and 3) customisation of the end-product considering the specific needs of the case and the client. Information management enables 1) the consideration of wide spectrum of aspects including building performance, environmental aspects, life cycle costs and service life, and 2) rapid adapting of the design to the specific requirements of the case.
