Structural development of the tender based land allocation process enables an improved public building development activity

Abstract [en]

Detailed planning for housing development is the responsibility of the respective municipalities in Sweden. Further, an ambition to develop sustainable building solutions based on wood is combined with each municipality’s building requirements, which increases complexity in the public process. Public actions leading to increased construction of wooden multi-family houses are important for all actors in this process, which is managed by municipalities through the Public Procurement Act or the land allocation process, depending on their development plan and strategy.

The aim is to shed light on how the land allocation process is currently performed, to improve efficiency and provide transparency and structure between developers and municipalities. The study uses the public procurement process as a conceptual model to structure the various activities in the land allocation process based on the similarities between the two processes. Thereafter, it is applied to the tender-based land allocation process to provide a transparent process for municipalities to follow.

The results display discrepancies in perception of the land allocation process and the level of competence displayed by municipalities when managing this process. This hinders the development of wooden multi-family houses in Sweden.

Abstract [en]

At present, Sweden is experiencing a housing shortage, which Swedish authorities expect to continue until at least 2025. Producers of wooden multi-family houses have a relatively small market share compared to those who use traditional building materials. Limited ability to meet the increased building demand restricts possibilities for development regarding innovation, bio-economy and sustainability.

 

Swedish municipalities are responsible for planning the building development in their regions based on their projected requirements and strategies. Combining this with a desire to develop sustainable building solutions based on wood increases complexity in the public procurement process. Currently, public building developments are achieved through the Public Procurement Act or land-allocation activity, depending on the development strategy. This normally involves developing local strategies regarding, e.g. design, material choice and geographical development. Identifying drivers and barriers in the industry and market enables improved market entry activities related to public building initiatives using wood-based solutions. Hence, improving transparency in land-allocation activity generates possibilities for companies to respond successfully to requests from municipalities. This knowledge is used to better understand the required strategic development for companies, the government and municipalities to increase use of sustainable building materials such as wood in Swedish multi-family housing projects.

 

Results show that the industry experiences barriers associated with municipalities' actions and knowledge related to wood as a building solution. Further, concrete’s strength as a building material is an issue, since municipalities tend to opt for familiar solutions. Furthermore, the way in which municipalities manage land-allocation activity is perceived as insufficient, with limited information, a subjective evaluation process, and uncertainties regarding their roles in the process. These factors contribute to ambiguity and sub-optimisation for developers proposing wood-based building solutions.

Abstract [sv]

Sverige är just nu inne i en bostadskris som enligt de svenska myndigheterna förväntas fortsätta fram till 2025. Tillverkare av flerfamiljshus i trä har en relativt liten marknadsandel jämfört med de traditionella byggnadsmaterialen. Den begränsade byggkapaciteten av träbyggnation hindrar även möjligheterna till innovation, bioekonomi och hållbarhet med fokus på miljömässiga och hållbara byggnadsmetoder.

 

Svenska kommuner ansvarar för att planera en lämplig bostadsutveckling som bygger på krav och strategier i relation till bostadsförsörjningsplanen. Komplexiteten ökar när man kombinerar den ökade efterfrågan med en önskan att utveckla hållbara byggnadslösningar baserade på trä, vilket för närvarande uppnås genom offentlig upphandling eller markanvisning beroende på kommunens utvecklingsstrategi. Detta kan även inkludera lokala strategier beträffande t.ex. design, materialval och geografisk utveckling. Genom att analysera industrins drivkrafter och barriärer kan förbättringsfaktorer identifieras och kunskap om dessa kan bidra till en marknadsutveckling av träbyggnation relaterat till kommunernas behov av bostadsförsörjning. En ökad tydlighet medför förbättrade möjligheter för företag att framgångsrikt svara på kommunernas förfrågan gällande bostadsutvecklingsprojekt. Denna kunskap kan även användas av företagen, regeringen och kommunerna för att bättre förstå det strategiska utvecklingsbehovet relaterat till hållbart byggande av flerfamiljshus med trästomme.

 

Resultaten i denna avhandling visar att industrin upplever hinder som hör samman med kommunernas agerande och dess kunskapsnivå avseende till träbyggnadslösningar. Den nuvarande marknadsdominans för betong som byggmaterial är ett problem då kommunerna ofta tenderar att välja välkända lösningar. Industrin upplever att kunskapsnivån bland de kommuner som hanterarar markanvisningar är otillräcklig, med subjektiva bedömningar av de presenterade byggnadslösningarna, samt kombinerat med otydliga roller inom markanvisningsprocessen. Dessa faktorer bidrar till osäkerhet och suboptimering för de byggherrar som föreslår en bygglösning baserat på trä.
