    Abstract

    Sustainability assessment is increasingly recognised as playing a wider role than purely a technically based exercise that is focused on assessing the sustainability performance of building projects. The potential has been suggested for sustainability assessment to evolve as a tool that facilitates the consideration and management of sustainability across the different stages of the project lifecycle. This aligns with calls for assessment to increasingly contribute to the predominantly subjective approach to decision making within the built environment and the need to increase the level of integration between the activities of assessment and the project lifecycle. Key to such an approach, sustainability assessment offers a role in aiding stakeholder engagement and mediation, in addition to providing a stimulus for the required learning amongst practitioners to aid the delivery of project sustainability.
