Industrialised homebuilding importance for the creation of aesthetic properties in the dwelling architecture - A case study at construction company JM AB (English)
Abstract [en]

The study aims to investigate the impact of industrialised homebuilding in the creation of the aesthetic

properties of the dwelling architecture.

The concepts of industrialised homebuilding and the aesthetic properties of the dwelling architecture are

defined by previously developed models. In these models, industrialised homebuilding is described by

eight characteristic areas. The aesthetic properties of the dwelling architecture are described by seven

aesthetic qualities.

The study was conducted as a qualitative study, and in-depth interviews were conducted. The company

JM AB is the analysed unit that the author of this report has chosen to study. JM employees and by JMhired

architects were interviewed.

The report concludes that characteristic area planning and control of processes are considered to have

positive impact on the aesthetic qualities if the process is designed in such a way that the creations of

these are admitted. Whether the characteristic area design of standardized building systems and platform

thinking has a positive or negative role in the creation of the aesthetic properties has not been able to be

specified on the basis of the collected material. The characteristic area is, however, considered to have a

major impact on the creation of the aesthetic properties. Characteristic area collaboration between

stakeholders in the process is positive and important for the creation of the aesthetic properties.

Characteristic area customer focus and emphasis on the early stages are beneficial for the creation of

aesthetic properties, but disagreement exists about how best to focus on the customer. Characteristic area

prefabrication of building components has a limited but positive impact on the creation of the aesthetic

properties. Characteristic area integration of logistics in production and the characteristic area use of

information and communication systems are not considered important to the creation of the aesthetic

properties. Characteristic area active experience feedback and performance measurement has a positive

impact on the aesthetic properties.

Planning and control processes, design of standardized building systems, platform-thinking, customer

focus and emphasis on the early stages are the characteristic areas considered to have the greatest impact

on the creation of the aesthetic properties. The author recommends an in-depth study on each of these

characteristic areas. The study aims to investigate the impact of industrialised homebuilding in the creation of the aesthetic

properties of the dwelling architecture.
