Purpose and goal

The primary objective of the project was the increased usage of sophisticated modelling and simulation tools in advanced building design. Views and methods have been studied. New forms of analysis have been introduced in a few complex and complicated projects. The method knowledge gives potential for development of processes and quality. This, not least in the continuing development of stronger integration of architecture-engineering-construction in buildings. Experiences gained are an important input to teaching at KTH.

Expected results and effects

A handful of ongoing complex building projects have benefitted from the project in raising quality in design, giving a potential for future development. The cooperative approach has been developed through three advanced thesis projects at Tyréns. An increasingly integrated process for construction, through parametric design, has taken major steps through the collaboration. A continued cooperation is essential, and gives a good basis, for further integration, in order to create functional and exciting buildings of high quality.

Planned approach and implementation

The interaction aspects have been developed through a presence of the project leader at Tyréns one day each week. Project time has been divided between active work in a handful of concrete, large-scale projects, participation in internal education at Tyréns, and general counselling efforts in daily activities. The regular presence has lead to a large number of spontaneous contacts and discussions, being advantageous to the transfer of information and knowledge in both directions.
