Abstract

An important phase within the overall residential land development process is preliminary project planning, which is a highly coordinated effort involving a number of decisions that are made by a variety of individuals. One critical decision faced by the project owner and the development team, during the preliminary planning phase, is the initial selection of the most appropriate site for a proposed conceptual development plan. The scope of this paper deals with (1) formulating a model for the preliminary planning phase of residential site selection; and (2) developing an associated decision support system that can assist the decision makers during this phase of the project. The analytical hierarchy process was the decision making theory used in the site selection decision support system. Analytical hierarchy process uses a hierarchical structure comprising both quantitative and qualitative factors that are based on factual data and the knowledge and experience of the decision makers.
