Abstract [en]

In this paper we have theoretically built a house designed for people with impaired mobility. The

essay begins with an introduction in which the purpose of the work, the methodology and the

depth-research part is presented. Then the layout that explains how we intend to adapt the house

for the demands detailed in the depth-research part is presented. In the same chapter various

structural components, such as different floors and walls, are specified.

In the selection of materials we have taken into account the criteria of our specialization and

adaptation to the aesthetic aspects, where we evaluate materials based upon our wishes regarding

technique and form. There are also other aspects that are important in the selection of materials,

including that these are adapted to technical traits of the construction elements and installations.

In a later chapter the technical installations such as ventilation systems, heating systems,

electricity and sanitation are presented, where both technical and financial aspects are described

in detail. The economic aspects are also described in connection with calculating the building's

power and energy requirements and then presented in the section where costs are accounted for.

Finally, the work is summarized in the section “Conclusion and Discussion” in which we analyze

all the work, and based on these analyses conclusions are drawn. During the course of work

regulations such as Boverkets Byggregler (BBR) and other sources were used. These sources are

presented in the bibliography section. We also received help and guidance from our supervisors

in various parts of the work, which we are grateful for.
