Strengths and weaknesses in Nordic housing development and construction - Lessons from Norway, Denmark, Finland and Sweden

Nordregio has been commissioned by Boverket to perform a Nordic comparative study on strength and weaknesses in the housing development and construction process in the four urban regions, Stockholm, Copenhagen, Helsinki and Oslo.

The objective of the project is to provide Swedish urban planners and construction companies with lessons and insights from the other Nordic countries.

The project is based on a desktop study as well as interviews with urban planners, construction companies and other representatives for the housing construction sector. Focus will be on the urban planning process, costs related to housing development and construction, as well as financial instruments.
