Sammanfattning: The construction industry in Sweden today is a busy market. The demand for new residences is very high and many are recruited to the industry for companies to be able to meet the demand. Generally a construction site needs temporary construction facilities for staff to manage administrative tasks and have conferences, eat, rest, shower etc. The purpose of this study is to investigate how the temporary construction site facilities can be established to better promote communication, cooperation, flow of people, flow of material, comfort and well-being. To identify problem areas and potential solutions, interviews were conducted with people from different working categories. Through interviews and own observations, the authors chose popular potential solutions and improvement opportunities and tested them on larger amount of people in a survey. By visiting a number of construction sites and their temporary facilities it was found that there are many ways to establish them. General solutions were made for bigger and smaller establishments, for example where to allocate different workspaces or how to use visual management in the best way. Suggestions were made on how to adjust furniture easier by using a system of holding strips and rails. Factors such as a relax rooms, paintings and plants were suggested to would improve comfort and well-being. Finally, conclusions could be made in different areas. More random interaction between working categories would improve communication and promote a nice working environment. An area especially made for these interactions with a strategic placed coffee machine could increase interaction. Offices should be allocated in a way that makes the ones responsible for the blue collar workers easier to reach. The ones who perform more administrative tasks throughout the day, like the site manager, should be allocated far from the entrance, to minimize the risks of disruption. Conference rooms should be placed furthest in the establishment, in that way meetings will not be interrupted. Today there is too little focus on the little things that could improve comfort and well-being. More comfortable chairs, tables that can be adjusted in height, white walls and so on are examples on what could be done differently.
