||This paper presents the current status of the information model of SEED-Config,one of the modules of the SEED (Software Environment to support the Early phases in buildingDesign) prototype being developed at Carnegie Mellon University and the University ofAdelaide. The goal of this information model is twofold: to store the design data as it is generatedduring the conceptual design and to support case-based reasoning. The main constructsof this information model are building entities, containment and domain specificrelationships, technologies, components, groups, and classifiers. Design knowledge is representedthrough technology hierarchies. This information model is being implemented inSPROUT, an information language. The paper concludes with a discussion on the use of thisinformation model in support of case-based reasoning.
