Benefits

Faster and better project definition

BriefBuilder helps to capture and define quality requirements in a systematic way. The captured information can be strategic (e.g. project objectives), functional (e.g. concerning users and their activities) and/or technical (e.g. concerning indoor climate, fixtures, fittings).

Systematic quality control

Requirements can be linked to test plans for quality control and commissioning. Such plans can be used to define when, how and by whom design proposals are tested against the clients requirements. Also test outcomes and test reports can be captured easily.

Knowledge management

Predefined quality standards and tests can be used across multiple projects. The use of standardized templates (e.g. for building types or standard rooms) makes the briefing and design process for new projects quicker and more efficient.

Seamless design integration

Data in BriefBuilder can easily be exchanged and integrated with data in design applications such as Revit. The design team can then easily find information and it allows for automatic verifications between the design requirements and design solutions.

Cross-disciplinary collaboration

With BriefBuilder, different disciplines and stakeholders can collaborate in a systematic way. Different parties can be made responsible for different requirements. Questions and remarks can be made online. Labels can be used to show which items require review and approval.

BriefBuilder allows me to structure all project requirements in a very neat, organized, systematic way. Thereby, it is an excellent help in complex projects where there are lots of stakeholders and interests involved.
