Studenteropgave: Speciale


The purpose of this project is to discuss how to establish greening processes in the construction industry in Denmark. Furthermore, the project aims to describe missing greening processes and more specifically, securing the health of the people using the buildings in relation to Sick Building Syndrome and indoor air problems. The project argues that some of the most important explanations for the lack of greening processes relate to the economic, knowledge-based and regulatory structures of the building industry. Also discussed is the lack of greening processes as a result of interactions between the different key players in the building industry. In analysing the barriers which do not allow greening process changes in the building industry, this project discusses economic, knowledge-based and regulatory problems, all of which make it easier for firms to ignore the fact that the users of a building are taking risk by using the building. At first, the building material manufacturers are backing away from health issue discussions concerning the users of buildings. The building material manufacturers also have a great influence on the regulation of the industry in general. Secondly, the regulation of the building industry is not taking care of the indoor air problems. The understanding here is that the indoor air problem and Sick Building Syndrome are solved by ventilation of the building. Therefore any indoor air problem is only a matter of getting a better ventilation system. The nature of interaction between key players is another possible reason for the lack of greening processes.
