Abstract [en]

This study discusses the meaning of ecocycle-adapted construction and how it can be used on a new construction work on Öjeberget in Järvsö, Hälsingland. The new construction on Öjeberget contains a hotel, a spa- and conference building and 16 cabins. Ecocycle adapted construction is not a new invention for building houses; the method is founded on techniques used centuries ago when the location and design of the building was chosen according to the conditions that nature gave. This study investigates some of the methods, building materials and system designs used in ecological construction. Several existing ecocycle-adapted houses were visited to complete the background information. While working with the study it became clear that there are five words that define this type of construction: reuse, reduce, recycle, renewable and rethinking. As far as these five words are concerned, choice of materials and energy systems are two of the factors that have the most impact on the energy consumption of a building. The study's background information was used to present some of the solutions for energy systems, sewers, types of material and waste products for the new construction. However, this study is not a definitive solution on how to create an ecocycle-adapted building, instead it can be used to make the planning of the buildings easier. Therefore, the owners of this project, Öjeberget Järvsö AB, should proceed with the investigation of how to reach the goal of an ecocycle-adapted buisiness.
