Abstract

When constructing buildings and building structures, we must often solve dilemmas regarding the implementation of specific technologies and materials. Depending on the planned use of a building, its functions and the expectations of its future users, some solutions may be superior to others. Because of a high number of factors that weigh on the final decision, it is necessary to employ efficient decision-support tools. Having analysed such a cases, the author has developed her own approach based on a graphic template of an investment project, which is compared to the profiles of assessed variants. The article presents the approach using an example of constructing a production floor building, where the ambient conditions will be harsh due to the planned production profile. The analysis included construction variants with a roof supported by one of the three types of girders: wooden, steel and prestressed concrete ones.
