Sustainability in industrialised wood construction: a theoretical framework
2007 (English)In: Proceedings from the Nordic Workshop in Wood Engineering / [ed] Helena Johnsson, Luleå: Luleå tekniska universitet, 2007Conference paper (Other academic)
Timber Volume Element prefabrication (TVE) is an industrialised production system, where wall and floor elements are assembled in factories to volumes before being delivered to the construction site. TVE manufactures buildings to a low production cost without any consideration of methods regarding life-cycle concern. An interview study, with potential clients of TVE, shows that there is an uncertainty about fulfilment of functional requirements, resulting shows that there is an uncertainty about fulfilment of functional requirements, resulting in a perception of inferior sustainability of the finished building. During design, decisions are taken concerning choice of material, components and installations that affect the durability as well as operating and maintenance costs during the service life of a building.
