This research explains the Greco-Roman city shape because it pertains to the geological foundation at chosen websites within the Mediterranean basin. all of the sites--Argos, Delphi, Ephesus, and Syracuse between them--has manifested in its actual shape the geology on which it stood and from which it used to be made.

For housing producers aiming at international markets, creating design concepts that can be adaptable to local conditions requires many factors to be taken into account. They must allow for, among other things, building traditions and regulations, owner’s preferences, and the whole life costing of the building system and its components. In order to improve knowledge on how to create a modular building system that can generate dwellings capable of being built in different countries, Modularisation 29 product modularisation methods are adapted and applied.

Even so, recent investigations based on LCA confirm that energy use during the user phase is the most important environmental aspect regarding the built environment (BK 2001). A second reason for this simplification is that complete, robust and reliable environmental data on building products is only available for a limited number of products and materials, making any detailed LCA for complete buildings problematic. 38 Construction Process Improvement The introduction of life cycle design into the routine of design is not a trivial matter.

The automobile industry and financial services provide other examples (Baldwin & Clark 1997). The components of an automobile are manufactured at different places and brought together for final assembly. It is possible because design of each part is precisely defined. Services are also being modularised, for example in the financial service industry. Financial services are intangible and the science of finance is well developed, which make its products relatively easy to define and separate. As a result, providers do not have to take responsibility for all aspects of delivering a certain financial service.
