SUSTAINABLE BUSINESS MODELS AND ORGANISATIONS
Historic study of regimes and dominating models for building and management of municipal WS and streets
To look ahead, we should also see and learn from past events. The focus of this project is to investigate the longer historical development lines around municipal infrastructure in Sweden.
The aim is to put today’s and tomorrow’s challenges in asset management in a larger context. Has there been a Swedish model for municipal infrastructure? In which systems have builders and system administrators acted during different phases of the historical development?
Have there been dominant models for construction and management? And what role has, for example, urbanisation played?
A comparison between VA and street / road, considered infrastructural system, is expected to be an important part of the project. How do these systems relate to a changing historical context, both in terms of overall political and economic conditions and in relation to the emergence of other systems?
