Abstract [en]

This Bachelor’s thesis consists of two parts; one with prefabrication (prefab) in focus and the

second part includes detail design of a house project. These parts are linked together by designing

some parts of the house project as prefabricated.

The focus section investigates how prefabrication can act time-, costs- and environmentally

effective to a building project. This is investigated by combining literary sources with sources

based on reality in the shape of interviews. The result of the investigation is that prefab

could act

effectively on previously mentioned factors,

if this way of building is used in a proper way.

The detail design of the house started in a residential area with a new local plan in Huddinge,

named Sjöängen II. In this project however the area is supposed to be in Borlänge to obtain a

different environment. A plot on which the house was to be designed was allocated this work.

The detail design covers everything from stress calculations, building services and energy

requirements to selection of material and giving shapes to plan arrangements. The work resulted

in a well-planned house that partly was projected to be built prefabricated.

The Bachelor’s thesis has given us an understanding of how complex it is to detail design a

house. Also, new knowledge has been gained within prefabrication. We are very proud of what

we have achieved in this Bachelor’s thesis and we believe and hope that what we have learned

will help us in our future career.
