Abstract: More than forty years of experience with passive houses and other developments in the mainstream of housing forms the basis for extrapolation to the future. We have observed a change in the design approach. Instead of improving the separate pieces of the puzzle, one starts with establishing a conceptual design of the whole system. After determination of the basic requirements for the whole system, and finding the specified requirements for the assemblies, one may select materials to fulfill these requirements. We also have observed. growing integration of mechanical and construction subsystems.
In the design of the integrated construction process, a number of factors such as: climate, cost and other socio-economic conditions, vary. As a result, one must talk about a set of design principles [1], rather than a description of a specific technology. In this paper the environmental quality management (EQM) technology (Bomberg et al, [2]) was selected for such a discussion.
