Web-based information channel for pipe replacement projects (English)
Abstract [en]

Pipe replacements with bathroom renovations are complex construction projectshighly dependent on the construction work carried out in the residents’ homes whilethe residents still live there. This fact makes the flow of information from contractorsto the residents of an important success factor. In the current situation thecontractor, Aros Bygg & Förvaltning AB, notifies the residents’ information throughpaper notification, which gives managing the work involves a lot of paper work.This thesis examines whether and to what extent the contractor may replace thepaper notification with a web-based information channel. The investigation was madewith an existing tenant, Brf Jupiter 1 in Täby, as the reference object. The inquiry wasconducted with respect to an understanding of labor management’s attitude to aWeb-based computer support for the provision of information as well as to get anidea of the opportunity the residents have to absorb information through thecomputer and internet.Work Management’s approach to computer support is not negative but rathercautious. This is because all respondents agree that it is too early to implement a toollike this due to the fact that all residents will not be able to benefit from a Web-basedinformation channel. The survey made in the housing association indicates that manyof the residents are positive to receiving information via the internet. While surveyresults indicate that there are residents who do not have computer or internet whichis consistent with labor management’s discussion.My recommendation to the contractor will be to continue with paper alert, becauseafter all it works. If the database is in use the supervisory staff is required to providepaper notification to residents who do not have computer or internet as and at thesame time maintain and provide the database for the residents who want informationthrough this channel. In short, it means duplication of work management and thus willnot down the workload. Possibly, the paper information may be complemented withan informative website if the contractor wants to offer Internet-based information aswell.
