Abstract [en]

The purpose of this thesis was to analyze savings opportunities in costs tied to the construction site. The purpose was also to investigate what effects a well-planned construction establishment could have on future projects. The thesis also highlighted possible difficulties in the rental process between building entrepreneurs and rental companies. A literature study of subject-relevant literature was initially conducted. The literature study highlights the various factors that costs tied to the construction site contains and theory of project planning and management. The current study covers interviews with persons in the construction industry. Respondents with different roles in the rental process were selected to study possible differences between the parties' opinions. A pattern was detected during the interviews with the respondents. They specifically noted six areas that have a potential to be improved and which can lead to lower costs. The areas were planning, communication, cost awareness, commitment, follow-up and digitization. The conclusions that this thesis has resulted in is that there are several factors to take account for in order to reduce costs tied to the construction site. For example, more time needs to be put into planning of construction projects and the planning process must be finished before the start of the construction. A completed planning will lead to fewer delays and thus lower costs. In order to achieve lower costs tied to the workplace a greater cost awareness is needed for everyone involved in the project. This creates a better understanding of how each persons’ individual decision affects the projects economy, which is needed to minimize unnecessary costs. By taking these factors into account, the savings potential will be increased.
