Abstract [en]

Due to devastating fires in several Swedish cities between 1838 and 1843, timber was not allowed to be used any more in bearing constructions for buildings with more than two floors. In 1994, the building code was changed towards functional requirements and timber could be used again in multi storey applications. However, this 150 year lasting prohibition let to the fact that building with timber in such applications barely developed. The market and the industry were used to steel and concrete, and mostly still are. Therefore, a strategy for more wood in construction was launched and implemented by the Swedish government in 2004, a.o. aiming at increasing the competition of building materials and -techniques. Here, prefabrication in an industrialized way was highlighted. Additionally, more Swedish wood should be processed domestically to save and provide jobs, but also to meet environmental concerns about reducing the CO2 footprint (Schauerte 2009).

Regarding the implementation of that strategy, the Minister for Communications and Regional Policy in the Ministry of Industry, Employment and Communications, Ulrika Messing, stated that regional innovators and entrepreneurs would be of utmost impor- tance to reach the set up goals. Here, Växjö municipality comes into play.
