Abstract
The new challenge for a construction project management is to meet the demands of sustainable construction, defined by ecological, economical, social and cultural variables. During a facilities lifecycle various activities involves a significant number of stakeholders. It could be those stakeholders who directly are involved, e.g. architects, facility managers or users, and those who more or less are affected by the project(s), e.g. the public. Each of these differs in their views of sustainability in general terms and in the view of the actual project. Based on the sustainability subgroups; ecology, economy, social, and culture, a profile of each stakeholder may be obtained. This can help the project management team to take a more, in a... (More)
The new challenge for a construction project management is to meet the demands of sustainable construction, defined by ecological, economical, social and cultural variables. During a facilities lifecycle various activities involves a significant number of stakeholders. It could be those stakeholders who directly are involved, e.g. architects, facility managers or users, and those who more or less are affected by the project(s), e.g. the public. Each of these differs in their views of sustainability in general terms and in the view of the actual project. Based on the sustainability subgroups; ecology, economy, social, and culture, a profile of each stakeholder may be obtained. This can help the project management team to take a more, in a sustainability view, correct course of action in their decision process. The purpose of this study is to

examine methods for estimating and evaluating views and opinions on sustainability from the various stakeholders, and discuss the possible applications for these methods, and how they need to be adapted to be suitable tools in construction project management. (Less)
