Abstract

This paper focuses on the implementation of integrated design methods in construction projects and in particular the change that the integration development calls for in the construction process. By a qualitative case study of a project using the latest technology we analysed the current process and pointed out its problems and benefits. They were pinpointed into their context within the process and classified into categories: technology, process, and people. The paper describes a unique study method that helps to create a shared understanding of the process and its development within the participants of the research: the researchers as well as the interviewees. The aim of the paper is to help industry to understand why the implementation of integrated design solutions (IDS) is slow and to encourage the shift from mainly technological development to a systemic development of the construction process that considers the optimum of the whole life cycle and value chain.
