Abstract [en]

The construction industry is a complex industry in which all activities occur in projects. Construction projects are by their definition temporary and inter-organizational with multitude of different actors working together. The work is done through several sequential and parallel processes that needs to be coordinated through the entire project lifecycle. This has been seen as a challenge for innovation and change within the construction industry, which has been characterized as conservative and reluctant to change. To improve innovation and inter-organizational integration, the construction industry has seen an increased use of collaborative efforts to support efficient production, to improve safety, reduce environmental impact and implementing third-party logistics (TPL). Introducing a new, a TPL provider, challenges the traditional project setting and how construction work traditionalley has been performed. The general aim of this study is to explore the effects of a new actor in a traditional project setup and to better understand how relationships evolve with innovation in temporary networks.
