    • Project focus
      A number of new sustainable housing projects
      Although the existing buildings are more important…
      What type of actors are initiating this kind of housing projects and why?
      What type of actors and entities are involved in the planning of the houses
      Interactions taking place?
      New or existing relations?
      What role has standards played in the planning of the houses?
      What issues in relation to resource consumption and environmental impact have been addressed? What strategies were developed for these issues?
    • Theoreticalframework
      Theories within the approach of social shaping of technology (SST)
      Each sustainable housing project is seen as part of an ongoing interaction between
      Environmental discourses
      Environmental strategies,
      The dynamics of the construction sector
      The dynamics of municipalities
      The dynamics of living conditions
      Focus on the development of scripts for a housing project,
      including the role of boundary objects and brokers, and product chains
      Case-based linked to mechanisms of diffusion of strategies within a sector:
      coming from ‘where’ – going to ‘where’
    • Different initiators to new sustainable housing projects:
      Municipal administrative staff in order to influence future construction of houses in the local area
      Local green intermediary in order to make sustainable houses which may attract ordinary citizens
      Building component company in order to initiate development of new building concepts
      Co-operative housing association to support development of more sustainable housing concepts
    • Enrollingactors in housingprojects
      Enrollingpoliticians
      Enrollingconstructioncompanies
      Enrollingcitizens
      Shaped by other agendas:
      Attraction of strongcitizens to localarea
      Demand and supplywithin the housingmarket
    • The role of standards, concepts etc.
      The new Danish construction guidelines for new houses with stronger demands for the energy consumption and efficiency
      The new Nordic eco-labeling guidelines for family houses
      Local guidelines for housing projects
      Internal company standards for houses: focus on existing suppliers
      The passive house concept
    • Sustainabilityfocus
      Mainlyenergyfocus
      Somefocusonbuildingmaterials and theirenvironmental and healthimpacts (PVC etc.)
    • Type of innovation
      Sticking to existingconceptthat is modified as little as possible
      Enrollingforeignarchitect in order to getbeyond ’the tootraditional Danish architects’
      Need for more research in the mechanisms of innovation and diffusion
    • Whatenvironmentaladvantagesareachieved?
      Achieving the predicted low energy consumption was difficult in a project
      Another project showed attempts from the construction company to ensure the predicted low energy consumption
      Providing instructions for use and maintenance
      Need for more detailed studies of the citizens’ actual domestication of new sustainable houses
      Design-in-use
      Description of the developed script for a housing project
      Understand those processes by which technologies are made to work (or not work) and are given meaning by households through acquisition, placement, interpretation and integration.
