    Abstract

    This new framework and tool for assessing the sustainability of masterplans and existing communities is currently used in the industry worldwide. SuBET has been developed over the past 4 years in partnership with Professor Clements-Croome, and Hilson Moran. The strength of SuBETool is that it demonstrates clearly, from the start of masterplanning, what can be achieved in terms of the performance of the proposed development.

    This framework has changed dramatically the treatment of the masterplanning process as a whole –integrated- system. This has had a major impact on the creation of a more integrated approach for the master planning process benefiting the community of practice, and has achieved International impact in strategic development in the UK, EU and the middle East. This research has replaced, the traditional perspective of master-planning as a linear process concerned with the end state is out-dated and now allows coordination of the plural processes of negotiating sustainable place development.

    his framework comes with a manual of guidelines which explain explicitly the 75 identified indicators, participation process and the compliance requirement for each indicator, and an assessment system. This proprietary framework has been published internally by Hilson Moran, Husam Al Waer and Derek Croome (2009-present). This framework is available upon request.
