Abstract [en]

The implementation of Self Compacting Concrete (SCC) together with two types of reinforcement and form techniques makes it possible to increase the degree of industrialization at construction sites markedly. To be able to realize this, Lean Construction principles prove to be important utensils during the planning and design phase. Also, the working environment is improved vastly when using SCC and different prefabricated reinforcement solutions. At the construction of the first full scale project "The Industrialized Concrete Bridge", which was built during 2006 in Sweden, the new techniques were applied. It was concluded that the working environment was improved by three fold, production time at site could be reduced with up to 20 % and that the number of workers could be reduced by virtually 25 %.
