Abstract [en]

This report contains a study of how pressured construction times affects the foreman in construction. Pressured construction times are becoming increasingly popular in today´s construction industry and is a subject that can be perceived differently from case to case.

This report aims to get a better clarity on what pressured building times means and how it affects the foreman. Three main questions were made before the case study began: What does pressure construction times mean? How does the foreman perceive his workload in construction projects during pressure? What work tasks the foreman has that is mainly affected by pressured construction times.

To ensure that the right purpose of the report could be fulfilled a choice of method was done before the essay could start. The method used in this case was a qualitative method based on a theoretical framework followed up by nine interviews with foreman’s and site managers at three different construction sites.

The most interesting conclusion that were made during this report was that work experience wasn’t something that made the workload lighter for the foreman. The workload is instead increasing over the year as the experience grows wider due to the higher expectations on the individual.
