||Construction is a hands-on business. The communication between stakeholders mainly occurs onlyfor resolving unexpectedly appeared problems. Nominal interaction and ineffective informationexchange between construction project parties' causes major problems in the concurrentconstruction projects. This paper describes how improved requirements management andperformance approach can help to resolve these problems. 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.
