Holistic Social, Environmental and Technical Quality Model

Research Project 18-1 (RP 18-1)

HOLISTIC QUALITY MODEL FOR INTCDC BUILDING SYSTEMS: SOCIAL, ENVIRONMENTAL AND TECHNICAL CHARACTERISTICS

IntCDC aims to deliver a disruptive socio-technical innovation that promises to develop a digital building system that offers solutions to current problems in construction and provides the prerequisites for a high-quality, liveable and sustainable built environment. In order to deliver on its promises and aspirations, IntCDC needs to be accompanied by a quality assessment.

The main challenge for this research project is to develop a Holistic Quality Model (HQM) that integrates social, environmental and technical aspects. Our research will break new ground in two ways: First, we will take an interdisciplinary approach and integrate social, environmental and technical quality characteristics and parameters into an HQM. Second, we will define the critical parameters in close alignment with the co-design-based development of building systems. In doing so, we will provide a process monitoring mechanism that has the potential to deepen and enhance collaboration and reflexive awareness of social, environmental and technical quality requirements in the development of building systems. Thus, the HQM will strengthen the co-design approach beyond the IntCDC research activities.
