Wooden housing construction in Russia in 2012

24 July 2013 ` 22:38  

For the second year in a row, WhatWood has made infographics based on the Wood Housing Association report on the housing market in Russia. More details are published in the recent WhatWood Weekly issue.

Among Russian regions, wooden housing construction is the most demanded in Tyva, Buryatia, Yakutia, Arkhangelsk region (without Nenets autonomous district), where wood has 92-97% in the regional construction pattern. In Magadan, Vologda, Irkutsk, Zabaikalsky regions as well as Komi and Karelia wooden houses account for 80-88%; in Novgorod, Yaroslavl, Tomsk and Krasnoyarsk – for 70-73%.

Wooden housing construction will be more and more popular: apart from obvious environmental advantages, amount of energy spent for production and transportation of construction materials will become decisive for the construction companies. This opinion was expressed by the experts polled by Wood Housing Association. Thermal insulation on the base of wood will develop quickly; wood will be used not only in individual housing, but also in multiple-dwelling and other constructions. Industrial capacities will become closer to areas of massive housing.
