1 Industrial construction technologies: lessons from Scandinavia Anders Q. Nyrud, Senior Researcher Kristian Bysheim, Researcher Norwegian institute of wood technology Forest Products Marketing and Business Management Hokkaido, Japan Norsk Treteknisk Institutt,

2 Introduction Wood has a small market share in urban construction The market for wood construction in urban areas is expanding new construction technologies increased demand for sustainable urban infrastructure

3 Raulandstua ca 1300 Systemhus 2008

4 Industrialized Construction Quality Efficient use of resources (Cost reduction) Speed up the building process Types of industrialized construction Volumetric sections Panelized construction Hybrid solutions Industrialized vs. systemized construction

5 Industrialized Wood/Timber Construction Precut Sawnwood/wood frame Traditional carpentry work Volumetric Wood frame CLT Modules assembled on site Panelized constructoin Wood frame CLT Panels assembled on site

6 Study Ten case studies Structured interviews Additional data collection from open sources Goal: Provide an overview of industrialized and systemized wood construction in Norway Experience Success Business models

7 Case 1: Passive house, Bodø (Mesterhus Norge) Timber frame construction. Wood used in load bearing constructions, facade and interior Picture: Mestergruppen A/S

8 Case 1: Passive house Bodø Large supplier of prefabricated housing Standardized designs, sold through comissioners, local contractors What you get is what we agreed on! Offers a wide range of alternative designs National focus on low energy consumption Exted the product range Has experience with wood Has developed solutioins that work Developed an inexpensive passive house Existing solutions (design, detailing, specification) Organization

9 Case 2: Zitty Apartment buildings, Drammen (Peab) Made of prefabricated volumetric modules. Wood used in load bearing constructions, facade and interior. Photo: Google maps street view

10 Case 2: Zitty Volumetric modules Manufactured by Moelven Byggmodul Wood was specified as buliding material because of soil conditions Logistics, construction time and process also important for choosing wood Previous experience with modules was emphasized, competitiveness + low risk Moelven Byggmodul Architects Detailing (Assembly)

11 Case 3: Engaland Apartment buildings, Oslo (Skanska) Made of prefabricated volumetric modules. Wood used in load bearing constructions and facade. Photo: Google maps street view

12 Case 3: Engaland Volumetric modules Skanska has invested in a factory for industrial wood construction (Husfabrikken) Decision to use wood was made early in the specification process Cost of wood vs. cost of concrete Local architecture Logistics and construction time was favorable Skanska Architects (Husfabrikken) Detailing (Husfabrikken) Assembly

13 Case 4: Shopping Centre, Vestby (JaTak) Prefabricated roof trusses, glue lam columns and timber frame panels Wood used in load bearing constructions and facade. Photo: Bjørn Lier, Trebruk AS

14 Case 4: Vestby Shopping Centre Panelized modules/hybrid JaTak: network of six independent producers of roof trusses Expanded product range: beams, panels Decided to use wood in the specifying process Builder wanted to use wood (visual poperties) JaTak offered a solution for roof structure Contractor suggested to use wooden wall panels Architect specified how wood were to be used in the project Received support from public innovation fund

15 Case 5: Prekestolen Mountain lodge (Holz100) Made of prefabricated CLT panels. Wood used in load bearing constructions, facade and interior. Photo: Jarle Aarstad, Emile Ashley NAL/ECOBOX.

16 Case 5: Prekestolen Mountain Lodge Panelized modules Manufactured by Holz100 Choice of building material made by architect and builder early in the specification process Complex design Environmental friendlyness The Norwegian Wood project Systemized production, customized panels Extensive problems during the process Communication between architect and Holz100 Logistics Assembly Organizational problems

17 Case studies: Summary Successful industrialized wood construction Cost competitive Low risk for contractor/builder Design, environmental properties etc The builder makes most of the decisions regarding choice of construction material Costs Logistics Visual appearance Architect important for specifying how to use wood

18 Business models Customer Value Proposition Good quality at a competitive price Minimize risk Solutions that can be adapted to customers needs Exploit wood properties (architects + environmental councious customers) Key Resources Knowledge of how to build with wood Solution that comply with building codes Design and detailing carried out by someone who knows the technology Production facilities

19 Business models cont d Key Processes Design, specify, assemble Key partners: suppliers, design/specification and assembly Customer relationships: trust! Problem solving Profit Formula Cost efficiency and quality Standardized solutions Systemized solutions Construction time For what values are the cusomers willing to pay?

21 Previous research Country Norway (Bysheim & Nyrud 2009) Sweden (Roos et al. 2008) USA (O Connor et al 2004) USA (Wagner & Hansen 2004) Important factors influencing choice of building material Previous experience, perceived behavioral control, building height Knowledge and experience, common knowledge, building type, building codes, example buildings, tech. solutions, economic and environmental issues Building codes, cost, performance, infrastructure in design and construction industry Dimensional stability and uniform quality. Fire, price and environmental properties less important

22 Building process To increase the use of wood we need a better understanding of the behaviour and motivation of the specifiers in the building industry. Information sources: communication channels from manufacturers, research, etc. programming sketch pilot detail construction Specification process: contractors, engineers, architects, builder, public authorities, real estate agent Adapted from Emmit (2008)
