Weather Protection Systems: Experiences from Three Construction Projects
Halmstad University, School of Business and Engineering (SET), Centre for Innovation, Entrepreneurship and Learning Research (CIEL).
2006 (English)Conference paper, Published paper (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

Industrialization is a well-known concept in the Swedish building industry, just as “weather protection systems” (WPS) is; however, WPS is seldom explicitly connected with industrialization. Perhaps this is because of the limited amount of experience that the building industry has so far had with WPS. This paper presents the results of an evaluation of the real advantages and disadvantages of WPS use. To this end, we studied three Swedish construction projects that employed WPS.

The results indicate that the studied WPS did function well: benefits such as shorter construction schedules, more precise time of material delivery, and the use of different and more effective construction methods were demonstrated. It is indeed profitable to use a WPS, especially if soft factors are taken into account.
