The SB_Steel project develops methods and software to manage life-cycle performance criteria of a completed building project with a focus to the early pre-design phases. The criteria include safety, security, user-comfort and key-indicators of sustainability. As an overall objective the project aims at a decision-making aid that supports selection of steel-intensive solutions. The sustainable building or renovation concept comprises the key indicators by which a building or renovation project can be steered, and later on the overall performance of a completed building can be monitored and evaluated. The early phases of a building project are known to be most crucial for the success of the construction work and for the performance and value of the completed building. Further, framing and typical related technologies are also selected then. The decision-making platform will be made available to various operators of the steel construction sector by the European Convention of Constructional Steelwork.
