Abstract [en]

ByggaF is a methodology for including moisture safety in the construction process that was developed and presented in 2007. ByggaF comprises methods to secure, document and communicate moisture safety throughout the construction process, from planning to management. The methods involve a standardized way of working designed to meet the demands of society and the client’s requirements for moisture safety. On request from the Swedish construction sector, ByggaF has been transformed into an industry standard. Since then, ByggaF has been used in a number of Swedish construction projects. One reason for the broad implementation of ByggaF is that the Swedish environmental assessment tool Miljöbyggnad demand for using ByggaF in order to reach “silver level” or “gold level”. Another reason is that more than 100 moisture experts have been trained to use ByggaF to assure a moisture safe building process. There has also been interest in using ByggaF expressed from other countries. The industry standard has been translated to English but it needs to be adjusted to country specific conditions, such as regulation and building practices in order to be applied in other countries. In Finland, the Swedish version of ByggaF has been adapted to Finnish regulations and used for including moisture safety in construction of a school at Bergö. There have also been attempts to adjust ByggaF to suit specific applications such as construction of prefabricated single family houses and renovation of multifamily houses.
