Municipalities turn to Poland

With an overheated market, Swedish municipal housing companies are finding it hard to build apartments at a reasonable price, which is why they are eyeing bids from construction firms in Poland. The idea is that the modular homes are manufactured in Poland, so that the amount of time the construction workers spend in Sweden, with Swedish wages, is kept to a minimum.

SABO – the Swedish Association of Public Housing Companies – says it has plans to widen its reach and meet Baltic and German companies this autumn in order to cut construction costs.
