Conditions for industrialised wood construction: A Swedish experience
Luleå University of Technology, Department of Engineering Sciences and Mathematics, Wood Science and Engineering.

Abstract [en]

The Swedish construction market is today characterised in a too low endurable housing production at a too high cost level. Forces are raised to increase the production and lowering the production costs without repeating the mistakes from the Million programs of the 1970s. The construction market in Sweden faces a challenge in building more at a lower price in buildings that is flexible in design and fits into the surroundings. This paper examines the factors and instruments that are conclusive for the wood industry to create an industrialised wood constructing actor. A case conducted in an ongoing wood building project in the middle part of Sweden will be presented. The project has been studied through interviews with representatives, in high positions, at the different actors involved in the project. The empirical results show that there are not an unessential degree of factors affecting the creation of an industrialised wood construction actor. The most important factors lie in the area for project organisation, cooperation forms, common terminology and control over resources and activities. One tentative suggestion is that the industrial network should be seen as an instrument for the development and the success in creating an efficient industrialised wood constructing actor.
