||During the last two decades, a number of research efforts have been made in the field of computer support systems related to the building construction industry. Most of the projects have focused only on a part of the entire design process and havve typically been limited to specific domain. Different approaches in developing these computer systems have been taken during the years. These approaches have, to a certain level, mirrored the level of available computer technology at the time the different projects were made. Further, standardization attempts have been made in relation to improve information exchange between different computer systems . However, its a very limited number of these research projects that have succeeded in penetrating at a commercial level. This paper presents a newly developed computer system based on the World Wide Web on the Internet. The focus is on the simplicity of the system’s structure and on an intuitive and user-friendly interface. The accessibility and the exchange of information are brought into focus. I.e. it is important that participants in a design process have easy access to internally and externally placed project information.
