Design- och konstruktionsdagen 2018 - Göteborgs stadslinbana

​Välkommen till RunAn i Chalmers kårhus och årets upplaga av design- och konstruktionsdagen.

Gothenburg Cable Car is a complex project. Although cable car systems are well proven in demanding mountain environments there are many unknown issues to deal with in the difficult urban context and the challenging geology of Gothenburg.

The conference lectures will explicitly address the complexity of the project. In our professional engineering culture, in the community and Chalmers as well, we often rigorously reduce the intricacy of boundary conditions in a given proposal to be able to optimize its design in detail. However, in a complex infrastructure project, such as the Gothenburg Cable Car, the boundary conditions are inevitable shaped by incompatible demands that will not disappear. It is a crucial lesson for any engineer who works with large-scale urban projects.

Consequently, the collaboration between the partners of the design project is paramount, a collaboration based on trust both professionally and personally. The conference lectures will give examples on how the Gothenburg Cable Car emerges in such a collaborative climate between the partners and stakeholders of the project. After the competition, it is the design process that shapes the Gothenburg Cable Car.
