Abstract

Lack of collaboration in design teams often results in a low mutual level of understanding about the design to produce. Especially the collaboration between designers and contractors is difficult resulting in sub-optimal design solutions and problems in construction.To improve that design phase was one of the aims of the 6th European Research Project ‘Euractive Roofer: develop tools to support designers and specialized roof-contractors in the setting of collaborative design to create innovative‘ active’ roofs. The concept of the web-based database is explained by its lay-out and functioning and is discussed through the results and insights gained by the Euractive Roofer-workshop with practitioners from the Dutch Construction Industry.
