On a strategic and operational level there is significant evidence of the integration of sustainability into the business environment, however studies have shown that the majority of major organisations do not include the risk and/or opportunities of sustainability in the design and detailed engineering phase of their capital projects.
Much of the discussion on sustainability in capital project management and engineering has centred on the feasibility or pre-project phases; however decisions taken during the design phase have a significant influence on the final outcome of the project, and tools or working methods must be provided to engineers and project managers to facilitate decisions during this phase of a project.
In this thesis a new working method for decision making during the engineering design phase will be developed based on the internationally recognized Global Reporting Index sustainability indicators and Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK) process. The goal of the work is to determine which indicators of sustainability are most relevant to the design phase of an engineering project and then to integrate those indicators into the PMBOK project management process.
A test case is used to determine the suitability and usefulness of the proposed method, and the conclusion is that the method proposed can be used by engineers to analyse their design and inform decision makers with a focus on sustainability of the project.
