Kaj Granath

Researcher at Building Design

Kaj Granath is an architect, graduated from Chalmers. Since he presented his PhD in 2006, he has been working at Jönköping University, as program manager for the bachelor program “Architectural Engineering”, and much involved in the work on internationalization. He has worked five years as an architect, in Sweden and Luxemburg. As a PhD candidate he spent one year as a visiting fellow at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, US.

At Chalmers, Kaj will work as a visiting researcher for three years, connected to Centre for Housing Architecture. His main task is to lead the project “Volume and Quality”, where a group of researchers from ACE, together with the municipal housing company Framtiden AB, will develop a value model for housing quality, to be used as a tool for the client when commissioning new housing projects. He will also be involved in teaching, both at bachelor and master level.

Kaj Granath´s previous research is mainly on digitalization and BIM in the building sector, and housing architecture, especially connected to housing for the elderly.
