Management in the Built Environment
Research in the Department of Management in the Built Environment aims to theoretically understand governing, organising and managing in the built environment to design interventions for societal challenges and transitions. Central themes are (1) collaboration, innovation and new ways of managing the built environment and (2) future proofing the built environment.
The research programme wants to (1) develop novel perspectives and translate these into designing innovative strategies, solutions, methods and tools, (2) improve governing, organising and managing that can impact on future designs in the built environment, (3) engage with societal stakeholders and users within and across different functions and scales (buildings, portfolios and urban areas) and different project phases and lifecycle stages (from initiation, design and construction to management, maintenance and redevelopment) and (4) develop next-generation leaders in management in the built environment.
