During research was analyzed the application of multicriteria decision making models in territory planning and building design process. The decision making is a complex task that must be done by appreciating the micro-, meso-and macro-environment factors and interests of different stakeholders groups. During building buildings design made solutions have impact on building life-cycle. Until now high-rise buildings design solutions wasn’t  complex assessed.

In the first chapter of the thesis defined the research object - a high-rise building. The building life cycle process is inseparable from the territory planning stage solutions. The task of review is to provide a macro-, mezo-, micro-level factors, stakeholder communication scheme on the building design stage.

In the second chapter was submited a new complex assessment model, based on various multicriteria decision making methods. It was adapted for building structural system assessment on initial design stage. Determined the most important indicators and their significance, potential indicators qualitative and quantitative assessment values.

In the third chapter presented a practical complex assessment  model adaptation to achieve rational building economic, technical, social, qualitative characteristics. In the first high-rise buildings location in the city task, which usually solve during special plan preparation stage, has one of the most significant stage affecting building life cycle process in the future. Presented high-rise buildings cocation in Vilnius city assessment based on existing high-rise buildings location in European rities strategies. It was applied SWOT, expert analysis, SAW, game theory techniques, MOORA and MULTIMOORA methods. It can be also assessed building design solutions then indicators described using quantative and qualitative information. The second task is to choose rational initial structural system of five possible alternatives. In order to save money and time for design, the decision making algorithm can be applied on initial structural system design stage, when there is no known accurate structural system parameters and input data is provided in interval. It was applied multistage complex assessment model composed from expert judgement, COPRAS-G, „TOPSIS grey“ and SAW-G  methods. Presented complex decision making model is also applicable to decisions made monitoring.
