The House of Culture

Value Creation in Cultural Construction

Published: 14 October 2008


This project is dealing with questions regarding value management and the values that a public building contributes to the client, developer, users and other stakeholders, i.e. to the society, community, municipality and its citizen and to the actors within the construction industry.

A close interaction with the municipality of Luleå and the local contractor Nåiden Bygg AB is forming the base for a qualitative case study of the value of a new cultural construction project in Luleå, as well as a benchmarking study of several other new cultural projects in Sweden.
