Abstract

This handbook provides an overview of DIVERCITY, a toolkit for construction briefing and design.
DIVERCITY allows users to visualise building projects and run computer simulations of various aspects of their performance during the briefing, design and construction phases. In particular, the software enables collaborative working between groups of project stakeholders in separate locations.
Current methods of communicating building design information can lead to difficulties. Typically, these include incomplete understanding of the planned construction, functional inefficiencies, inaccurate initial work or clashes between components.
