Abstract

This paper is based on interviews, a literature study and seminars. It describes the

situation in Halland when it comes to multi-story housing built in timber. From 1874

to 1994, Sweden had a regulation that prohibited construction of timber houses with

more than two stories as a result of big city fires. After the regulation was revoked,

people started to build multi-story houses in timber again. Compared to the rest of

the country there was not that many built in Halland. Construction entrepreneurs

here possess the right competence and it is close to the raw material. Even though

that, there are only five multi-story houses built in the county.

Result from this study shows that the main problem of implementing multi-story

housing built in timber is biases and lack of knowledge. Many of the players in the

construction industry do not base their decisions on fact when it comes to choose

timber or not. This in combination with a lack of information regarding financial

issues and unfavorable regulations has resulted in a slow development of the

implementation of multi-story houses. The reasons behind this are discussed in the

paper and some possibilities of change are presented.
