MODERN METHODS OF WOOD CONSTRUCTION IN RUSSIA AND ABROAD

The article describes the trends of modern wooden housing con-struction in Russia and abroad, as well as existing methods of construction and the pro-spects for further development of the industry. The states of the regulatory framework, including fire danger today were analyzed. There were found out reasons why Russia has a great potential in the development of modern low-rise building and why the coun-try is lagging behind in the wooden house-building industry of countries with similar climates. One way to solve the problem of affordable housing in Russia is the develop-ment of the construction based on wood.
