During the past few years, a cluster of development projects with wide participation have been initiated in Finland in order to create the necessary basis for a second wave of industrialization of construction in the next decade. The targets include the creation of an open construction system based on prefabricated components and of a national framework for project wide computer aided design. On the other hand, a research programme concerned with computerization and robotization of construction has been launched, in order to build up the, necessary national competence in these areas, which are seen as the major driving forces for the coming changes.
