THE INTEGRATION OF GREEN-BUILDING TASKS AND PROJECT-DESIGN PROCESSO - CASE STUDY
The development of a green-building project following a speciic reference standard such as LEED, brings new conditions and restrains for all subjects involved in the process. Such changes afect technicians, owners, bureaucracy and also the management tasks either during design or construction phases. Within this scope, the management of sustainability-related activities plays a key role for the optimization of the design-project development. This research analyzes the design process of two
... ent case-study projects undergoing the same green-building certiication from the project management perspective. In both project sustainability-related activities were performed throughout the design process however, in one of them such activities were integrated to the building-design development and in the other they were not. The projects selected for the scope of the research is a new nursing home complex located in Northern Italy and an oice building project in Barcelona (Spain) currently pursuing the LEED certiication. A new methodology was created in order to analyze the project and evaluate the efects of detected project-management issues under three diferent points of view: costs, time and building sustainability. Such "issues" were identiied by researchers on the basis of the LEAN-deinition of "waste". The scope of the research is to demonstrate a positive relationship between integration of the process green-building tasks and successful development of green-building projects within the European construction environment. The results showed that integration of green-building tasks through the development of the design process can considerably afect the cost, schedule and sustainability of the project design.
