Abstract [en]

In Sweden there are plenty of land to build on which has led to a lack of interest of building high. It is only in recent years that hi-rise buildings have increased, particularly in the bigger cities. The purpose of this master’s dissertation is to contribute with knowledge about how the production of a hi-rise building should be planned and executed to generate an effective workplace with a safe work environment. Data was gathered through literature, interviews and observations. A prefabricated high-rise building can be built in a very short amount of time but that requires a particular and correct production plan. A cycle timetable has been used in all three of the studied cases. Visual management tools were used to give everyone an open overview of the working progress. To make a production profitable, it is required that the right amount of material is transported and handled with efficient means at the right time, the studied cases used the method Just-in-time. This together with thoroughgoing roads at the working site has created a flow of the logistics. The working environment is always critical at a construction site. Falling is the most common reason to fatal accidents within the construction industry and a very relevant risk when building high. On the studied cases the risk of falling has been prevented through scaffolds and security railings according to the rules of the Swedish work environment authority. This study has shown that a cycle time plan works well in a high-rise building project because the floors are similar to each other and can easily be divided into different cycles. Through visualizing the plan, all workers get involved and conflicts can be avoid because everyone is well informed of the conditions at the moment. It has also shown that a good flow on the logistics can be created through a well executed construction site plan which streamlines the deliveries and the handling of materials. Accidents at the work area can be prevented through safety gear, documented work preparations and risk inventories as a part of the systematic work for a safe work environment.
