Abstract [en]

This study is intended to contribute to the understanding of the probability that bio-based materials are chosen in residential buildings and to the understanding of the drivers and barriers for an increased use of bio-based building materials. For this purpose, semi-structured interviews were held with Swedish architects and contractors. The results indicate a low probability of selection of bio-based materials in Swedish residential building, mainly due to insufficient incentives, lack of knowledge and experience, bad examples, issues regarding performance and construction-related culture and habit. However, the attitude among contractors has started to change in a more positive direction. Green building certificates, as well as other environmental standards and regulations, were seen as a promising way to increase the use of bio-based materials. Evidence that the materials maintain a certain quality over time was also identified as an important measure to increase the incentives to select bio-based materials.
