Long-term planning, efficient allocation of resources, and awareness of the future challenges of a society require comprehensive information about the state of the built environment. The objective of this study was to develop an evaluation process for assessing the state and development of the built environment in a country. The evaluation process was called "ROTI" and it was tested in 2006 by evaluation of the state of Finland's build environment. The evaluation work was done in four areas: Buildings, Traffic Networks, Water, Waste and Environment, and Future. The evaluation report model proved to be an effective tool to communicate with politicians and other decision makers as well as with the media. The results indicated that the ROTI expert panel working is an efficient method of assessing the state of the built environment.
