  • Abstract:
    The built environment is expected to face major renewal and development across the wider Europe and especially in the new member states of the European Union. The increasing societal demands for an environmentally friendly urban development as well as a variety of global issues, such as lifecycle sustainability and climate change impacts, require an integrative planning, design and construction of built systems based on lifecycle performance management. The vehicle to achieve these goals may be a European virtual knowledge and information framework for performance and risks associated with built systems. The major needs for establishing such a framework, the objectives and benefits, and the anticipated scientific deliverables are presented here. The collaboration with ongoing research projects with similar orientation is discussed. This paper accentuates the importance of and contributes towards a European approach for the development of built systems, based on shared understanding and treatment of performance and risks issues.
