This diploma work addresses the question of how much energy is spent whenmanufacturing the components of a building as well as of how much energy is used inthe production of a building. The object of the studies is BioCentrum at the SwedishUniversity of Agricultural Sciences in Ultuna just outside the city of Uppsala. The aimof the work was to investigate how much energy was consumed when manufacturingand production in relation to the management, how many years the production wasrepresented. It was also a study in how mature the construction industry is to answerhow much energy was consumed in manufacturing.In order to get these answers a question form was developed and sent to thesuppliers to BioCentrum. In this form they were to respond to the quantity suppliedto BioCentrum and the amount of energy was spent when manufacturing thecomponents. Unfortunately the response rate was very low and we instead had toseek information on the internet. This was done by using building productdeclarations. With a list of the quantities used in the building, received from NCC, theenergy was calculated.The result of this investigation shows that the construction industry needs a fewmore years to mature before they can fully respond to this. But with the values wegot from the suppliers and our own calculations, we concluded that the manufacturingand production represents 3.5 years of the management of the building. This wascompared with the projected energy consumption of 124 kWh/m2, year.
