Abstract [en]

The site manager has a key role in every construction project and is the person who has utmost responsibility on the site. This often leads to high workload and a high stress level for the site managers. It has also taken place a change in the construction industry the recent decades and is also constant under development, and this is all of the new technologies and methods, which has led to a more efficient production and increased requirements and regulations. This is a thing that many site managers think leads to a more stressful existence for them, as it is their task to manage and control the production and meet all the demands and requirements. 

The problems with a more stressful work and a lot higher workload were encountered in the literary studies, and also by the respondents in the interviews. At the same time, the attitude to the site manager role was more positive by the respondents than the studies showed, but everyone felt that there were several possibilities for improvement in order to make the profession more sustainable. The authors found that the various problems were due in part to differences between the generations. Based on this, a couple of conclusions could be drawn. The importance of having a person in each project dealing with the administrative parts that site manager carries, a coordinated role to facilitate the transition of new site managers and widen the older generations' approach to the younger.
