Examining the role of experts as knowledge facilitators in standardized and industrialized building practices and processes

The overall objective of this project is to explore how organizations in the construction industry can develop industrialized processes that not only provide a more efficient production, but also stimulate efficient knowledge exchange between different social groupings involved in construction projects. This not only stimulates and supports development in the studied organizations; it also raises knowledge and understanding concerning the roles of human actors as well as non-human agents as knowledge facilitators in standardized and industrialized building practices and processes. As such, the results form the study may provide important input for a sustainable and competitive building industry.
