Abstract: This paper presents current problems in the project definition phase and discusses their consequences to the project and to the end product, a building. A tool providing assistance in the project definition phase is introduced. Experiences from piloting the tool, EcoProP, in building construction projects are described. The tool is based on a generic classification of building properties. The tool supports documentation of requirements in a form of values or classes so that their conformity in design can be verified. Its intended use is to produce the design brief and to serve as a guide for designers. The decision-making procedure with EcoProP is transparent and the well-documented objectives can be revisited in need of change. The tool is currently implemented in projects of different building types.
