Abstract:A design process of a new building is becoming increasingly complex which makes it difficult to implement sustainability assessment during a building process of a new building. By modeling an existing business process using IPD with Petri nets, and extending this business process with sustainability assessment, this paper analyzes the impact of sustainability assessment on the design process of a new building. A Petri net is a mathematical modeling language that can be used to describe the behavior of a business process with many components and parts. Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) is a method of project delivery distinguished by a contractual arrangement among a minimum of owner, constructor and design professional that aligns business interests of all parties. IPD motivates collaboration throughout the design and construction process, tying stakeholder success to project success, and embodies the following contractual and behavioral principles. To reach this goal my research is divided in four parts: investigating the IPD method at Vibes building engineering and modeling it into a Petri net, validation of the IPD model, investigating Breeam.nl and incorporating this assessment method with the existing IPD model into a new model, and finally, analyzing and comparing the two models. This resulted in a comprehensible model which maps an IPD process for a company like Vibes building engineers. The analysis of the model shows a significant increase in complexity of the IPD process when the sustainability assessment method Breaam.nl is added to an IPD design process of a new building.
