This paper describes an information model for the establishment and processing of client requirements on construction projects (briefing). The model is described using the EXPRESS-G graphical notation, and it provides a formal representation of the nature, sources and interrelationships between information required for the implementation of a methodology for client requirements processing in a computer environment. The rationale and details of the methodology, which forms the basis for the information model, are reviewed, and the complete entity-level diagram of the EXPRESS-G model is presented and discussed. The implementation of the information model in a computer environment will enhance the definition, analysis and translation of client requirements into solution-neutral design specifications. This in turn increases the chances that the resulting facility that is designed and built from those requirements will be to the satisfaction of the client
