Division of Industrialized and sustainable construction

The division of Industrialized and sustainable construction (ISC) consists of the research subject Construction Management and Building Technology.

The division's activities include research and education concerning the building process stretching from planning and design to construction. Our core competencies are management and automation of the building process, industrial and traditional construction and production systems, primarily for building construction but also for civil construction. We also conduct research on virtual and energy-efficient construction through visualization, analysis and simulation. The department is involved in two laboratories: MCE laboratory and Virtual Reality Lab.

The division is responsible for some 20 undergraduate courses and is primarily responsible for the Master of Science in Civil Engineering programme with a major in Lean Construction and for the Master of Science in Achitectural Engineering programme with a major in Building Design.

The number of employees at the division is about 30.

Our research

Peab_LTU
Peab and Luleå University of Technology aim to increase efficiency in the construction industry

Peab and Luleå University of Technology (Division of Industrialized and Sustainable Construction) have initiated a collaboration in systematized and sustainable construction. In this way, Peab can benefit from the latest research in its work, while LTU gets the opportunity to test its research in practice. The goal is to increase efficiency in the industry and to create more sustainable construction.

In the media: Wood construction shows the way

The industrial wood construction sector has increased productivity by 30 percent and shortened the construction time by 3.3 months. The results show a new study of the industrial wood construction sector made by Luleå University of Technology.
