AbstractThe Division of Building Research has investigated, in the field, the leading "system housing" advances in urban building in Northern Europe. The results of these studies are already being used by some Canadian builders of large multi-family housing complexes and there is a rapidly developing interest in the subject. "System building" developments raise the critical question of precision in the manufacture of large-panel components, especially when these are highly prefinished and are assembled to form almost the complete building. This paper concerns the extensive statistical sampling of dimensional control and on problems in system building, by the consulting engineering firm Rastor OY, in Helsinki, Finland.
