Moisture protection and planning in building projects – Experiences from Eolshäll (English)
Abstract [en]

When the Eolshällproject was completed for the first time, a great deal of moisture

damage was discovered. Therefore the structure completion was removed and

reinstalled. The project was originally planned to cost a total of 126 million SEK, but the

final costs landed on 271 million SEK. What caused this failure? Were the designs poor,

was the technology used too advanced, or was the project not managed properly?

Based on the Eolshällproject, theses will be presented about what may have caused the

moisture damage. On the basis of interviews and documentation from the project,

selected structural components have been analyzed. We have studied how these

components are designed traditionally and presented our own suggestions.

When it comes to traditional building techniques the design itself is not likely to be the

source of great damage. In these cases it is more likely that the problems are caused by

inappropriate handling of material components and lack of competence.

These factors are usually caused by poor communication at the building site and the

communication between the site and the client. It is therefore important that the

drawings are detailed and understandable for all parties.

When building, one should take deep consideration to the moisture aspect in the design

due to the fact that these kind of damages can be difficult to repair or adjust. A

constructor need to think in a long-term perspective. Buildings that will remain for 100

years require good design and good execution. Besides quality, time and money are two

important aspects when constructing a building. Good planning is vital to bring these

three aspects together, which is achieved through good communication
