|Literature review shows that there is no standard method to assess buildings’ sustainability neither to identify which items/indicators should be assess. Literature also reveals that early phases of a building project are essential to assure the buildings’ sustainability. As so, a research project has been established aiming at improving early design stages of a building project by providing concepts and methods for increasing the whole life-cycle sustainability performance. Therefore, in a first phase it is essential to analyse which is the impact of taking into account sustainable indicators during the initial phases of a building, and which should be the chosen ones. Hence, the paper proposes a methodology to analyse the impact of considering social and economic indicators in a sustainable building construction and its assessment.
