Abstract
In 1874 the first Swedish construction norm was written. This stated that no houses were to be built with timbered frames over two floors. It took almost a century before the norm was changed again in 1994 and allowed Swedes to build high buildings with wooden frames again. Although the constructions with timber did not increase, the Swedish government started in 2002 a national timber plan "Mer trä i byggandet" to educate and restore knowledge that had been lost with former generations. 15 years has past since the change of the construction norm. Numerous of buildings with wooden frames have been built throughout the country. One of these is the Limnologen quarter in Växjö. Limnologen is the highest building in Sweden with a wooden frame,...

In 1874 the first Swedish construction norm was written. This stated that no houses were to be built with timbered frames over two floors. It took almost a century before the norm was changed again in 1994 and allowed Swedes to build high buildings with wooden frames again. Although the constructions with timber did not increase, the Swedish government started in 2002 a national timber plan "Mer trä i byggandet" to educate and restore knowledge that had been lost with former generations. 15 years has past since the change of the construction norm. Numerous of buildings with wooden frames have been built throughout the country. One of these is the Limnologen quarter in Växjö. Limnologen is the highest building in Sweden with a wooden frame, eight stories high! The purpose of this thesis is to discuss those vitally factors of building economy for wooden framework in buildings over two stories and compare these to concrete. Also other factors as knowledge and marketing are taken in aspect. This paper is based on a case study of Limnologen in Växjö, litterateur studies, interviews and a study visit on sight. The results of this study, money can be saved in areas with poor soil conditions when laying the foundation of a building. Also the aspect of marketing and climate is positive when choosing wood.
