Abstract [en]

In 2010, the first commercial project using a new modular timber building system started. Four-thousand two-hundred square metres of living area divided into 170 apartments were to be built in Malmö, Sweden. This paper describes the development and implementation of a modularized timber building system. During the development, decomposition must allow the design to be modular. In addition, the ability to implement component swap modularity in order to support different functional requirements added to the flexibility of the building system. However, the benefits of having flexibility in the design of standardized module interfaces had to be balanced against the economic consequences of overcapacity. The project identified that the benefits of modularization can be expressed as a magnification factor defined as the number of possible unique solutions divided by the number of module variants. In the implementation phase of a new modular building system, it is essential to communicate the constraints and rules of the building system to the various workers involved otherwise ad hoc solutions will appear. The introduction of modularization support in CAD tools used by the architects solved many of the initial problems and created a configuration process which produced minimal disruption and reduced the number of design iterations.1
