RUMSSTANDARDISERING : Ett projekteringsunderlag för Sandviks framtida byggnadsprojekt
Abstract (Summary)The construction industry works today with a time limit, therefore it is important to have rational tools to improve the efficiency in the building process. That’s the reason for this report, where a standard for interior finishes has been developed for Sandvik. The standard for interior finishes is designed as a program for room functions and includes office space and sanitary areas. It is a proposal showing how Sandvik can design their premises in the future. Today there is a special constructions department which deals with all projects in the area. The problem is, however, that everyone works on the basis of their own experiences which have caused the lack of uniformity in the facilities of Sandvik.The starting point to enable this study has been how Sandvik’s offices and premises look today. Among other things their finishes have been studied, interviews with concerned people have been made and the function of the main repository has been explored. What the people at the constructions department start with at new projects and why has also been studied. The interviewed persons are mainly employees at the constructions department, but also other people involved in Sandvik’s projects.In order to make different standpoints in the choice of materials in the premises a study of those has been made. The selected materials are presented in the standard for interior finishes, where as much information as possible has been included. For surfaces have suppliers, colour and material been clarified. Suppliers have been determined for the firm interior equipment, while the manufacture has been selected for the movable furniture. The standard for interior finishes is supplemented with drawings to illustrate what the rooms may look like, but also to provide a simple way to show adequate places for firm interior equipment.Sandvik’s vision is to be a successful company. The hope with the standardisation is to streamline the building process and thereby make gains in both time and money.To obtain a better working environment and thereby make the employers feel better is also a purpose for this report.
