Abstract [en]

There is an increased demand for multi-family houses in Sweden, which makes it important to investigate what the residents consider to be building quality in relation to their living situation and what they prioritise when selecting an apartment. Having the ability to build good housing units is an essential part of society since it directly affects people's living standard and way of life. Consequently, understanding living quality creates possibilities to adjust the construction and design of housing units accordingly. Currently, more multi-family houses are being built with wooden frames than ever before, and it is therefore interesting to compare if there is a difference in how residents experience the quality of living in a multi-family house with wooden frames compared with concrete frames.The purpose is to show what residents consider to be living quality and if there is any quality difference in housing units using wood or concrete as construction material in the building frame. A survey has been sent out to a selected amount of multi-family houses in Sweden, Thereby, gain an understanding of the perceived quality of new building developments, which showed that the quality of living did not differ between the selected materials and the location in the city was the most important parameter when choosing accommodation for the residents.
