Part 2: Project and design management - best practices and tools

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Collaborative project management can be supported by several tools and methods. A change management enables the identification, examination, and modification of every proposed change to the design of the building. Cost control tool can ensure that actual costs do not exceed the preliminary cost assessments and budget reserves. Collaborative and synchronized work can be ensured by following a detailed commissioning plan. Energy-related technologies should be installed following the guidelines laid out in the commissioning plan. Once the installation of energy systems is completed, functional testing takes place to ensure any deficiencies are handled according to the commissioning plan. Checklists are provided to construction contractors and developers to facilitate functional testing ahead of the occupancy phase. Pre-occupancy checks verify the complete and correct installation of monitoring devices, and tests are conducted to assess the thermal and physical performance of the building structure.
