Initiatives Supporting Timber Constructions in Finland, Slovenia and SwedenManja KITEK KUZMAN, Katja LÄHTINEN, Dick SANDBERGUniversity of Ljubljana, Biotechnical Faculty, Department of Wood Science and Technology, Slovenia manja.kuzman@bf.uni-lj.siUniversity of Vaasa, Faculty of Business Studies, Department of Marketing, The University Consortium of Seinäjoki, Finland klahtine@uwasa.fiLuleå University of Technology, Wood Science and Engineering, Swedendick.sandberg@ltu.seAbstractFinland, Slovenia and Sweden are the three most forested countries in the European Union. While Finland and Sweden have a long tradition of building with wood, most housing in Slovenia were made with brick and stone. In Finland, knowledge of wood, an age-old building material, is actively preserved and enhanced. New wood buildings gain a contemporary twist, and are a significant part of the building stock in Finland. Swedish long tradition with timber construction is going from strength to strength thanks to the development of advanced, modern day timber structures. Sweden’s national building code has allowed the construction of multi-storey timber housing since the mid1990s. Builders and architects know that timber is not only an economical building material but that it has the added bonus of being climate friendly. Though few in number, most Slovenian timber buildings combine contemporary styling with energy efficiency measures that bring them close to passive house standards. Slovenia’s construction industry is widely recognized as advanced in the field of low energy buildings. As energy-efficient building methods gain importance, timber passive houses can play an increasingly important role in the future.In this paper, the Finnish, Slovenian and Swedish initiatives and legalization supporting timber constructions will be presented in relation to current European regulations with an emphasis on the use of wood as a sustainable architectural construction material for the future
