Finanskrisens inverkan på byggbranschen

Abstract [sv]

Recently there have been a lot of talk a about the financial crisis and recession. This is understandable since the crisis, which initially was limited to the U.S. now has spread its concern globally in form of bankruptcies, less investment and lots of people have lost here jobs.

The purpose of this thesis is to examine how the financial crisis have affected the construction industry relating to market and personnel, but also examine what measures the construction companies have taken.

The examination was carried out by information received from the majority of construction-related websites which then was followed up with interviews in the various construction sectors.

I have come to conlusion that the housing market has been hardest affected by the financial crisis becuase it is controlled by the household economy and future hopes. At year-end housing with some form of private ownership or operation, in principle, completely disappeared. The local and construction market has done well thanks to government investment. The most affected construction companies are the larger contractors that largely focuses on new construction of housing. Within the construction sector over 10,000 people have lost their jobs where the majority are artisans and new recruits. Most of all needed right now is positive political signal so the banks dare to lend again, and households dare invest so that housing can be restored.
