Research profile

My research is about the development of the construction process with a special focus on business model development, productivity and changing roles. Central to me is to develop both industrialized timber house building and structured construction as a concept and as a means of increasing the efficiency and sustainability of housing construction. The research also deals with digitalization to increase production efficiency and digital transformation. All my research takes place in collaboration with industrial and public stakeholders as co-producing partners.


I teach construction technology, construction engineering, constrcution management and industrialized house building within the master's engineering programs in Architecture and Civil Engineering. I often supervise and examine final diploma works in the construction specialization at V and the house construction specialization at A.
