    Sociala aspekter på en multikulturell byggarbetsplats: Arbetsmiljö & säkerhet2017Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The report is written in collaboration with H2 Entreprenad AB and focuses on the workenvironment with foreign subcontractors on the Swedish labor market in the constructionindustry. A comprehensive literature study has been done and completed with an interviewstudy.The construction industries production rate is at levels equal to the days of the millionprogram in the 60s and 70s. 710 000 new homes are needed between 2015 and 2025according to Boverket. With such pressure on the construction industry, companies havedifficulty in obtaining labor. This is one of the reasons why posted workers have increasedsignificantly in Sweden in recent years.The foreign labor force gives access to new skilled labor, which is usually cheaper. However,the requirements of management of foreign subcontractors taken in are increasingsignificantly, leading to enlarged costs. The risk of a foreign worker being injured in aSwedish workplace is also 36 % higher, and the risk of dying is four times the size of aSwedish. This means that a greater focus on a functioning work environment is needed, whichwill operate despite language barriers.The social and cultural differences are analyzed and processed in the report, how hierarchiesand guidance for professional workers are done in a comparison between Swedish and foreignsubcontractors.

    Träkonstruktioner EK5 Materialegenskaper och dimensioneringsregler för balkar, pelare och förband2011Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Standarden Eurokod 5 är gällande dimensioneringsstandard sedan januari 2011. Denna handbok innehåller en samling av formler och tabeller för materialegenskaper och dimensionering av träkonstruktioner enligt Eurokod 5. I skriften behandlas både brottkraven som ställs på bärande konstruktioner och funktionskraven såsom nedböjning. Spik- och skruvförband, dimensioneringsformler och minimikrav presenteras följt av en samling av praktiska övningar med lösningsförslag. Handboken framställdes i samarbete mellan Högskolan i Borås och SP Trätek.

    En studie för en förbättrad besiktningsprocess inom bostadsproduktion2017Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Within the construction industry, inspections of the construction are made to secure that thequality and its functions are accurate according to the demands from the purchaser of theproject. This study examines different tools that can be helpful to use in order to secure a lowrange of inspection remarks to achieve an improved inspection process within the constructionindustry. To investigate how and where an improvement can be made, a survey of inspectionremarks were performed. The survey was supplemented by an interview to gain employersaspect on how Skanska could achieve an improved inspection process. Skanska has recentlyintroduced a new routine of the inspections, with the purpose of reducing the number of remarksand getting satisfied customer.The effect of the new routine has been studied and the result shows that Skanska is not far fromreaching the goal, however improvements can still be made. The new routine provides a betteropportunity to locate the remarks earlier in the construction process and there for more time torepair the remarks is gained. Thus there will be fewer remarks on the final inspection eventhough the overall numbers of remarks during the whole inspection process will remain thesame.Both the survey and interview manifested the areas where focus should be directed in order toimprove the inspection process. The contributing factors to the results are discussed andproposals for improvements are presented.This study will hopefully contribute to an understanding for the inspection process within theconstruction industry. Also bring understanding for the reasons why construction often gets alarge number of inspection remarks and how they could be avoided.

    A modified pycnometer method to determine the water absorption of combined crushed concrete aggregate fractions2019In: International Conference on Sustainable Materials, Systems and Structures (SMSS2019): Novel Methods for Characterization of Materials and Structures / [ed] Gabrijel I, Grosse C, Skazlić M, 2019, p. 286-292Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Crushed Concrete Aggregates (CCA) as fine and coarse aggregates in new concrete helps achieve closed-loop recycling. Assessment of workability, mechanical properties and durability of concrete demands knowledge of the water absorbed by the CCA. The EN 1097-6standard method is difficult to execute due to the presence of entrapped air and CCAsedimentation while performing water absorption experiment for fine CCA. Additionally, the assessment of Saturated Surface Dry (SSD) state seems operator specific and nonreproducible;moreover, giving water absorption measurement only at 24 hours. However, findings from this paper show measurements at 15 minutes is influential for concrete workability. The modified pycnometer method analyses the water absorption of a combined fraction consisting of coarse and fine CCA as proportioned in a given concrete recipe. Furthermore, sedimentation and entrapped air are prevented by pre-soaking the CCA in a solution of distilled water and poly-carboxylate based superplasticizer before commencing the experiment. Ultimately, the combined fraction is drained to SSD condition by vacuum filtration, which is easy to handle by professional operators. In this way, the water absorption development is measured from starting point to 24 hours for the combined fraction to determine the appropriate water amount to saturate CCA during concrete mixing.

    Abstract [en]

    In the center of Gothenburg different projects are ongoing around Lilla Bommen, one ofwhich is Vasakronans reconstruction of Kvarteret Platinan. There is also an immersion of E45in the center of these projects. When many projects are working in the same place at the sametime, risks of collision between these projects becomes larger that affects road users,emergency vehicles, public transport and others.The focus of this report was from the perspective of Trafikverket and its project E45 and howit influences the project flow. The purpose was to find solutions for the following questions:● How can Trafikverket deliver a secure way for pedestrians and people riding bicyclesthrough the construction projects?● What demands can Trafikverket as road manager place on Platinan consideringlogistic solutions?The questions were answered with several methods which were put together and examined forpossible solutions. Studies of literature and interviews were performed with Marika Åkerman,project manager from Trafikverket and Mohammad Jahan, consultant from Tyrens.The report does not include information that did not involve Trafikverket and Vasakronan.The first problem was analyzed by photographing different places around the constructionprojects, this to study the progress during the construction time. Thereafter, reflections andexaminations were made on the road conditions through five different factors which were:availability, orientation, safety, traffic safety and attractiveness.Because of future planned demolitions, crane placements and other dangerous constructionwork, a proposition to use open containers was made, but with a more appealing appearancethat could protect pedestrians.For the logistic solutions, several suggestions were presented such as Constructionconsolidation centre (CCC) which can be explained as a distribution center. The advantagewith a CCC was that it was located near Platinan and gave the opportunity to use trucks andsmaller vehicles instead of larger ones. The second suggestion was to use the harbor byshipping containers.Finally, several other solutions were also described in the report that could reduce transportaround the diversion roads, such as using several different roads, that no personal vehiclesshould be parked by the construction site and a suggested carpooling between projects, ifpossible.
