Abstract [en]

This report describes the design development to meet the project's established aesthetic and technical requirements of a façade system in wood within the project “The facade of the city Swift, Stylish, Smart”. The development of the design was performed in close collaboration with the project partners throughout the project. In this way, questions about the manufacturing process, assembly and maintenance have been continuously weighed in and provided inspiration and deepened knowledge for the design outcome. The goal of the project was to design a facade system of good architectural and technical quality made of heartwood of pine, well adapted to meet the requirements in an urban environment. We have set the limit for the facade system to a maximum of eight floors. Overall, the façade system must assure market competitiveness and provide a clear added value compared to competing façade materials in terms of design sketch ability and environmental aspects and thereby contribute to a bio-based economy. The result is a facade system designed for the high demands in the future building industry regarding recycling and environmental requirements on materials and components. It consists of façade cladding with mounting system, joints and connections to windows and corners made of sorted and defined raw wood material using a minimum of metal and glue assembled into a facade system. The system has been tested regarding fire according to SP Fire 105.

Abstract [en]

The Facade of the city Swift, Stylish, Smart. "The Facade of the city Swift, Stylish, Smart" is a project within BioInnovation's project "IPOS", funded by Vinnova, Formas, Swedish Energy Agency together with industry partners. The aim of the project was to develop a facade system of pine adapted for buildings up to eight stories in an urban environment, in terms of fire safety, adaptable aesthetic design and maintenance routines. This report is a compilation of results that form the basis for the participating companies continued work with the facade concept. Customer requirements, building regulations and the market for facade systems were initially investigated, analyzed, and compiled. An architectural design was developed with the purpose of making the facade attractive and easy for architects to use. Solutions for design and mounting of the façade formed a technical platform that combined design, materials, maintenance with economy. Wood properties and surface treatments were studied and verified in tests to achieve fire safety and long service life. Heartwood of pine was chosen because of its suitable material properties for facades. The facade system's functions were verified in lab tests and by small scale design prototypes. Full scale tests of the mounting of the facade system were carried out on two buildings in Luleå, whereafter mounting time and functions were evaluated. The pilot test showed that mounting was easy and quick once the builders got acquainted with the system. However, since the elements need to be adjusted to the wall it is important to prepare mounting well in advance. A full-scale fire test of the facade system was carried out with Teknos fire protection paint, which passed the SP Fire 105 test. Overall, the façade system was developed to be market-competitive and contribute to a sustainable bio-based economy. To assure this, durability and circularity have been considered both in the design and the choice of materials. “The Facade of the city Swift, Stylish, Smart" challenges the traditional way of purchase, designing, and assembling a wooden facade. Today, when longer maintenance routines and long service life of facades are in focus, it is important to highlight the strengths of pine heartwood in terms of moisture inertia and resistance to biological degradation. By manufacturing and commercialising a high-quality tested product, developed with an iterative research approach, this façade system has become competitive and can contribute to an increased demand for pine heartwood. The results can also open up new business opportunities for component manufacturers of wooden facade systems. The work has also been documented in a film available on Youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w-lo_evWiUs

How to implement circularity requirements in procurements for public construction, a guide
Abstract [en]

This guide is a review of the most recent European results from reports which shared experience and knowledge on how to introduce circularity in procurement documents. It also contains the authors’ own conclusions and proposes a business model and a list of possible requirements that could be introduced in procurements by municipalities.

It refers to the definition of circular building, to the principles behind it. It shows how to use the valuable experience of sustainability and how to pass from a sustainable procurement (Green public procurement) to circular procurement.

The guide is meant to be a reference, a supporting document for public decisions-makers when choosing criteria for procurement document of new constructions.

Abstract [en]

The use of timber structures in tall buildings increases the demand of moisture safety in facades. Moisture in the facade could result in unwanted consequences such as mold, decay and distortions in wood materials. This might have impact on the indoor climate and the building quality. The aim of this study was to evaluate the moisture safety regarding the composition of the façade and connection details such as windows and balconies. Scenarios with possible damages were evaluated with LCC (Life Cycle Cost) and LCA (Life Cycle Assessment). The scenarios were developed based on experiences from manufacturers and insurance companies and on research investigations of damages. LCC and LCA includes replacement of damaged building materials, transports of new materials and damaged materials for recycling or energy recovery and the use of energy for drying of moisture in the structure. Both light frame structures and CLT (Cross Laminated Timber) structures were included. Improvements of detail connections to increase moisture safety were also evaluated regarding risk of damage, costs and environmental impact. The results show that even small and inexpensive improvements will increase the moisture safety and significantly reduce the risk of damage.

Abstract [en]

There is a major need of cost-effective renovation that leads to lower energy consumption and better environment. This article shows the results from a pilot case of a newly developed prefabricated building system. It is an industrially prefabricated insulated wooden element adapted to renovation and upgrading of building envelopes. The renovated building is a one-story office building located in Skellefteå in the north of Sweden. Energy performance, thermal bridges, risk of moisture problems, LCA, applicability of the renovation method and assembly time were evaluated during the planning and execution of the renovation. Results from this case show that the elements were very light and easy for one person to handle at the building site. There is a great potential to reduce assembly time with improved joints and element sizes adapted to the building as well as improved batch packaging from the factory. With 100 mm insulation, the renovation gives a certain energy savings, and LCA calculations show that the reduction of climate impact due to reduced heating energy used during a service life 50 years corresponds to the climate impact of the renovation measures. The risk of microbial growth can be regarded as small.

Abstract [en]

The construction sector faces the challenge of mitigating climate change with urgency. Life cycle assessment (LCA), a widely used tool to assess the climate impacts of buildings, is seldom used for bridges. Material-specific phenomena such as concrete carbonation and biogenic carbon storage are usually unaccounted for when assessing the climate impacts from infrastructure. The purpose of this article is to explore the effects these phenomena could have on climate impact assessment of road bridges and comparisons between bridge designs. For this, a case study is used of two functionally equivalent design alternatives for a small road bridge in Sweden. Dynamic LCA is used to calculate the effects of biogenic carbon storage, while the Lagerblad method and literature values are used to estimate concrete carbonation. The results show that the climate impact of the bridge is influenced by both phenomena, and that the gap between the impacts from both designs increases if the phenomena are accounted for. The outcome is influenced by the time occurrence assumed for the forest carbon uptake and the end-of-life scenario for the concrete. An equilibrium or 50/50 approach for accounting for the forest carbon uptake is proposed as a middle value compromise to handle this issue. © 2017 Informa UK Limited, trading as Taylor & Francis Group

Abstract [en]

There is a major need of cost-effective renovations that lead to lower energy consumption and better environment. The aim of a Nordic built project was to develop a concept for industrially prefabricated insulated elements for renovation and upgrading of building envelopes. The project with participants from Sweden, Finland and Norway focused on increased prefabrication based on wood for a sustainable solution. This report presents results from the project including a Swedish pilot case with the newly developed prefabricated building system. The prefabricated wood elements are produced by Termowood in Norway. Several studies have been done about renovation of facades, including attitudes and costs, and about important properties of the element system, for example energy savings, thermal bridges, moisture risks, environmental impacts, production and installation.

The renovated building in the pilot case is a one-storey office building located in Skellefteå in the north of Sweden. Energy performance, thermal bridges, risk of moisture problems, LCA, applicability of the renovation method and assembly time were evaluated during the planning and execution of the renovation. Results from this pilot case showed that the elements were very light and easy for one person to handle at the building site. There is a great potential to further reduce the assembly time on site with improved joints and element sizes adapted to the building as well as improved batch packaging from the factory. With 100 mm insulation, the renovation gives a certain energy saving. LCA calculations showed that the reduction of climate impact due to energy savings during a service life of 50 years corresponds to the climate impact of the renovation measures. With a thicker insulation, the reduction in climate impact during the use phase of the building would increase more than the climate impact of the renovation. There is also a potential to reduce climate impact from the wall element by selecting materials produced closer to the element factory and with a greater share of renewable energy.

Abstract [en]

Sustainability includes several parameters, and these can be measured and valued in many different ways. This study focuses on balancing the various parts to achieve sustainability by minimizing energy for heating and energy to produce the materials used in the building as well as minimizing cost for material investment and cost for heating using optimization techniques. This is balanced together with the environmental impact. This report describes an initial study for sustainability optimization of a smaller building. The goal is to develop a comprehensive approach to provide a broader basis of decisions for new construction.

The calculation included the building envelope (exterior walls, roof and floors), interior walls and stabilizing elements for different frames of wood (timber frame and CLT).

The result from the Ripan Case shows that the timber frame design has the lowest embodied energy and operating energy, and lowest cost for investment and heating during the operating phase. The environmental impact of the timber frame design was also low.

Abstract [sv]

Hållbarhet innefattar flera parametrar och dessa kan mätas och värderas på många olika sätt. Att väga ihop de olika delarna för att uppnå hållbarhet genom att minimera förbrukad energi för uppvärmning och energi för att producera material till bygget samt investeringskostnader för material och kostnader för uppvärmning är fokus i denna rapport. Detta vägs samman med miljöpåverkan. En inledande studie för hållbarhetsoptimering av en mindre byggnad är genomförd med målet är att utveckla en övergripande metod för att ge bredare beslutsunderlag vid nybyggnad.

Beräkningar av inbyggd energi, driftsenergi, investerings- och uppvärmningskostnader har genomförts för ett planerat hus på Camp Ripan i Kiruna. I beräkningen av byggnaden inkluderades klimatskärm (ytterväggar, stomstabiliserande element och grund) för två olika stommar av trä (träregelstomme och KL-trä). För miljöberäkningarna användes främst indata från EPDer och resultatet redovisas i form av klimatpåverkan, CO2-ekvivalenter.

Den utvecklade metoden ger potential för bättre ekologisk och ekonomisk hållbarhet genom ett optimerat val av byggnadsmaterial för byggnader. Optimeringsalgoritmen ger förslag på byggnadsmaterial med minst energiåtgång vid produktion, den sk inbyggda energin, samt vid uppvärmning under driftsfasen samt lägst kostnader. Miljöaspekten vägs också in i bedömningen för att få ett mer heltäckande beslutsunderlag för beställare och projektörer. Metoden är tänkt att i fortsatta studier vidareutvecklas för användning på mer komplexa byggnader som till exempel flerbostadshus.

Resultatet från Case Ripan visar att regelkonstruktionen har lägst inbyggd energi, driftsenergi, investeringskostnad samt kostnad för uppvärmning under driftsfasen. Även miljöpåverkan från regelkonstruktionen var låg.
