Abstract [en]

Efforts to achieve a moisture proof construction process have proved to be considerably complicated, despite the knowledge and awareness that now exists within the moisture field. Materials, documents, templates and checklists are designed to be accessed but are not used anyway. This may be because such effort has not been prioritized and properly requirements have not existed from the commissioner of a building.

This report illustrates how the commissioner of a building project can achieve a moisture proof building process by increasing knowledge, moisture proof planning, and implementation of security moisture routines. Proposals are given on how the commissioner of a building project can work to consistently bring a moisture proof building process in all stages. The difficulty with regular moisture proof efforts, the authors believe is mainly due to the following points:

      Many different design solutions.

      Lack of experience feedback.

      Lack of communication.

      Financial incentives.

      Attitudes.

The interviews in the report have conducted with the help of a qualitative analysis, while the survey has been done using a quantitative analytical method. The report's theoretical frame of reference is characterized by literature studies together with experts in the field and the reports they have developed at their research.

A book has also been written where some of the most commonly moisture damages have been described. The book is written in a simple and pedagogical approach because it is primarily aimed to increase knowledge among construction workers and others with an interest in the moisture subject.

By carry out continually efforts in right direction, we believe that it is possible to build moisture proof buildings.
