TNO at International Conference on Construction and Real Estate Management (ICCREM2013)


On 10 and 11 October TNO was present at the 2013 International Conference on Construction and Real Estate Management (ICCREM2013) in Karlsruhe (Germany). The goals of PROFICIENT fit very well to conference topic “Construction and Operation in the Context of Sustainability”. The conference was hosted by Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and co-sponsored by many universities from all over the world. Tim Dijkmans, one of the authors, presented the paper “Requirements of Decision Support Tools based on Total Cost of Ownership for Collective Self-Organised Housing”, in which the need for information in the earlier stages of the design process is emphasized.

Within PROFICIENT, tools are being developed, based on the specific requirements of CSO projects. The emphasis on the early design stages also fits with the concepts of value management and life cycle costing in facility management, which were topics of the key note speeches that were given at the conference by Prof. Geoffrey Shen (Hong Kong Polytechnic University) and Prof. Svein Bjørberg from NTNU (Norway). The paper is published by the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE).
