Abstract [en]

This master thesis has examined how an architect uses the clients’ requirements for designing a multi-family residential. The study has specifically examined the briefing process to identify current problems and shortcomings. Thereafter the study proposes a framework that improves the briefing process for both parties.Initially this study examined two rambeskrivningar and the BSAB-system. These documents have then been compared to each other to identify how a client today compiles his requirements. Afterwards a literature review examined: client requirements to architects, clients’ shortcomings and the underlying factors. Furthermore existing and theoretical solutions to improve the briefing process were studied. The existing solutions were Problem Seeking and Duerk’s question matrix. The theoretical solutions were based on three different approaches Concurrent Engineering, Value Management and Information and Communication Technology. Four qualitative interviews were conducted based on the literature review and reference material. The interviews examined four categories: the architect’s perception on construction process, clients’ knowledge, architects’ method and the usage of BIM. By comparing the result from the interviews with the theory the study could identify the client’s requirements. Subsequently the study identified how architects evaluates the client’s requirements and thereafter the architects’ method was recognized. The method was then compared to Problem Seeking and Duerk’s question matrix to identify similarities and shortcomings. From the identified method, shortcomings and the theoretical frameworks a new framework was proposed that was adapted to the current construction process.The study concluded that the architect doesn’t use a specific method for the briefing process. The architects’ method was identified as being something similar to “dialogue and sketching”. The proposed framework has a great potential, because it is based on identified shortcomings and simplifies the preconditions for both parties. This will then enable a foundation for a standardized briefing process.
