Abstract [en]

At Byggmäster i Mälardalen AB and many other contractors in the construction business, the overall responsibilities for the production and a big part of the production planning are today put in the hands of the site manager. This role is as such crucial for the execution of the production and whether the building process will be safe enough, economical and of high quality. In order to be able to take on several projects at once, a well-established company would need several site managers. Chances are there could be differences in construction management between these site managers, this due to individual diverseness and differences in experience. To improve the site managers’ chances to manage the construction, an investigation was made to evaluate the possibilities to restructure the work procedure of the site manager. To obtain a comprehensive view of the role the site manager plays in the construction business, a comparison of the description of the site manager role was made between Byggmäster i Mälardalen AB and several of the major Swedish contractors. The literature study was made to support our hypothesis and interviews to obtain current information from the company. In order to evaluate whether it is possible to ease the work load of the site manager and to contribute to a bigger uniformity among site managers, an informal meeting between site managers was arranged. The interviews with the site managers and related staff at Byggmäster i Mälardalen AB would bring context to the comprehensive view of the site manager at the company. The gathered results were analysed and evaluated. By establishing a straight dialogue among the site managers as well as a sufficient method of experience-sharing, differences in ways of thinking can provide the individual site manager a wider perspective on construction management and a better production planning at Byggmäster i Mälardalen AB could be achieved. This can result in long term improvements for the company regarding their work process. To maintain a dialogue and share experiences after projects, time for the effort must be included during the project planning. The possibility to create more time and better conditions for the site manager during the construction production process can also be made in connection to the early planning. If the site manager had been given insight to the project earlier, the thought process of how the planning should be done could begin earlier.
