Samenvatting

The main principle of the way we build houses today shows a striking similarity with construction already known in Ancient Rome [Lamprecht 1996]. The numerous improvements that have been made during the last decades (regarding insulation, fittings and finishing) are basically added to the initial Roman practice of construction. The result of this is that technique, as well as process, as well as organization in residential construction is become deformed after a succession of additions, making present residential construction very inefficient and inertial [Liehtenberg 2005]. A radical reverse of residential construction is essential with emphasis put on real industrialization of large building parts. This paper describes a conceptual idea for industrializing residential construction that is specially geared to enable unique design results. This principle called industrialized building, sets up facilities for an industrial way of building. It aims to combine most benefits of industrialization (regarding quality, cost-effectiveness, labour condition, etcetera) with prefabrication (to adjust elements enabling unique results) and traditional work (to construct on different locations with site conditions far from ideal), all as essential ingredients of industrial building. The result will be an open way of building enabling special requests, crucial for creating unique complex building projects.
