||Measuring building change: a method to capture building knowledge
||Choukry M A
||Buildings are subject to change of requirements didring their periods of use. In the lastdecades it has been mostly assumed that the rate of change is increasing. Exactdescription of the type of change or the aniount of change is not always investigated.Requirements change knowledge in currently used buildings is lacking. A method isrequired that identifies empirical building change knowledge. Identification of changesin buildings has the objective of examining if the empirical change could be useful inforecast change in newly designed buildings. The rest of the paper is organized as follows: Section 1 overviews general knowledgeand buildiiig knowledge, Section 2 identifies and structures requirement changeknowledge. Element change knowledge is strucbred and described in section 3. Achange measurement method is introduced in section 4. Empirical analysis applicationto the change method is explained in section 5. A tool prototype in section 6 shows howchange knowledge is captured from existing buildings and made useful to forecastchange in new designs.
