Hazardous materials (e.g. asbestos and PCB) is a health risk and when encountered during renovation processes increases costs and lead times. In this project information about where hazardous materials have been found will be gathered, systematized and connected to comprehensive registers about the building stock. Machine learning makes it possible identify patterns and make predictions of where hazardous materials might be found in the entire Swedish building stock.
