Productivity measurement in building refurbishment

Start date 01/05/2014
End date The project is closed: 30/04/2015
​Building refurbishment is of great importance for the industry, but workplace oriented productivity measurement is lacking. The goal here is to map and analyze the practices of workplace measurement of resource use in refurbishment projects, including today's IT support, to develop simple productivity measures for building refurbishment and to investigate requirements for IT support. Twenty site managers with recent experiences of housing and office refurbishment are interviewed. Interviewees are selected considering that various corporate and project sizes are represented.  Collaboration is planned with a new major project, National Transdisciplinary Centre of Excellence for Integrated Sustainable Renovation funded by FORMAS (The Swedish Research Council for Environment, Agricultural Sciences and Spatial Planning) at Lund University and National refurbishment center at LTH.
