Today, 3,800 companies that are active in the Swedish construction and civil-engineering industry are members of the Swedish Construction Federation (Byggföretagen) Together we pursue a number of issues in order to promote development of the construction sector and sustainable building of societies of world class.
The Swedish Construction Federation strives to promote a healthy construction industry by safeguarding ethical business practices and quality in construction. We want to be well-organised with the help of laws and rules that apply to all the companies in the sector.
We also work for safe work sites with no injuries or accidents, as well as for modern employee agreements that give the individual more control over their work situation and personal development.
Our operation is based on three principles; the Labour market, Economic policy and Member service.
The Swedish Construction Federation is active throughout Sweden, with a central office in Stockholm and 25 offices from Luleå in the North to Malmö in the South.
