Valmöjligheter i samband med prefabricerade badrum

by Andersson, Madeleine; Rudengren, Nanny

Abstract (Summary)
This report deals with prefabricated bathrooms and the advantage, during the production process, they have compared to ordinary produced bathrooms.The work is done together with the building company JM. The common task is to investigate if the manufactures, in spite of standardized design can meet the concept of JM, i.e. high flexibility and adjustment towards the customer. In JM they are doubtful to the method, as they did not yet worked with prefabricated modules and think that the choises for the costumer will be limited.There will be a short resume of the progress of the bathrooms and its importance as sanitary and wellbeing.The recent problems with damage caused by damp in bathrooms. Have resultade in regulations. These rules, will be briefly reported.There will also be a short review of some interviews with persons who have experience of prefabricated bathrooms.Different manufacturing methods will be reviewed and how different modules will be installed in to the houses.Concerning the economy we have accepted the figures of the manufactures.Prefabricated building is a method to shorten the production time on the working site. It will be done through manufactoring buildingblocks in factories. The blocks could be simple beams or complete modules. Therer is a great deal of advantages for instance the productions will not be depending of the weather.The quality will also be more uniform, since each part is produced independent of earlier parts.We have learned about the planning process, construction and installing and we think that not only JM but also other building companies could have a lot to win in this way of buildingThe problems we have noticed are:• Very accurate planning is required from the contractors• The transporting factors restrict the flexibility and the size of the modules• The modules take more space than the ordinary way to build• The modules required depression in the ground beam layer in the area where it should be placed. This will be calculated for during the constructing period.
