The authors have earlier developed atool, EcoProP, to provide assistance in the project definition phase to develop the design brief. Towork as a single entry for project requirement information where the stakeholders can add theirrequirements and edit dated information, the next generation version will be a web-based tool. Thiswill help to improve the interaction in the construction process by creating a common ground forcommunication.
