This Forest Fact sheet will present the state of the art of wooden multi-storey construction market development in Finland and Sweden. From a consumer perspective, housing requirements were captured in three factors: environmental and social sustainability, quality, and design. A literature review points to the importance of cost efficiency gains from prefabrication. Municipal perspectives clearly illustrate how political goals may influence the governance and perception of public procurement processes. A transition to sustainable construction practises is supported by legislation that requires sustainability declarations.
