Collaboration Between Contractor and Subcontractor : A Study From the Subcontractor's Perspective in the Construction Industry (English)
Abstract [sv]

Byggindustrin har en stor påverkan på ett lands ekonomiska tillväxt. Av byggprojekts totala omsättning står underentreprenörerna för en stor del. I studien undersöks hur samverkan mellan entreprenör och underentreprenör kan främja problemlösning under produktionsfasen.För att besvara på frågeställningarna som skapats har åtta stycken platsansvariga underentreprenörer intervjuats. Intervjuerna har sedan jämförts och analyserats tillsammans med information från litteraturstudien av artiklar, rapporter och andra texter.Resultatet visar på att flertalet problemlösningsmetoder används för de vanliga problemen ute på byggprojekten, dock finns det möjlighet för standardisering och förbättring. Planering, informationsbrist och oförutsägbarhet är de ord som karakteriserar de vanligaste problemen. Entreprenören och underentreprenören bör fokusera på att skapa ett förtroende för varandra och skapa ett gemensamt tänk på att arbetet ska göras tillsammans. Entreprenörens platschef bör se till att det finns mötesstrukturer som hjälper både underentreprenörer och entreprenören med planering. Ersättningsformen löpande räkning får underentreprenörerna att fokusera mer på huvudprojektmålet och gemensamma lösningar.

Abstract [en]

The construction industry has a major impact on a country's economic growth. The subcontractors account for a large part of the total value for construction projects. The study examines how collaboration between contractor and subcontractor can promote problem solving during the production phase.To answer the questions created, eight subcontractors' site managers have been interviewed. The interviews have then been compared and analyzed together with information from the literature study of articles, reports and other texts.The result shows that problem-solving methods are used for the usual problems on the construction projects today, but there is the possibility of improvement. Planning, information sharing and unpredictability are the factors that characterize the most common problems. The contractor and subcontractor should focus on creating a good relationship with each other and have a mindset that the work should be done together. The contractor's site manager should ensure that there are structured meetings that help both subcontractors and the contractor with planning. The form of compensation on a current contract causes the subcontractors to focus more on the main project objective and create solutions together.
