Abstract [en]

This candidate.’s work includes designing of a house with it.’s structural components and

installations. The house had to be actual with Building Regulations (Boverkets Byggregler).

Beside designing of all the crucial systems necessary for completing of claimed regulations even

an optional topic within building engineering had to be chosen.

The task included designing of heating, ventilation, sanitation and electricity systems. Structural

engineering models has been made in compliance with Eurocodes. Materials for facades, floors

and roof were chosen and evaluated.

As recessed portion of the work, evaluating of possibilities in designing of a glass roof was

chosen. Glass roof included glass beams and transparent building envelope to achieve maximal

interaction with the natural environment around the house. Result of these exciting studies on

one of the most successful materials in structural engineering, beside concrete, steel and timber,

has been made and presented below. The work on designing the roof was made with accordance

to the designed house overall function and systems.

When working with this project we learned us that the process of designing a complete house is a

hard task to achieve and that all the functions and installations need accurate planning. Also, by

studying properties of structural glass, we learned us a lot about that interesting material.
