The survey we launched in February on our website and on LinkedIn was an unexpected success: we registered 182 replies from 15 different countries! Various professionals got involved, such as specialists and owners of construction companies, with or without experience in the field of timber.
The results we got were really interesting! They are summarised in the following diagrams:
The present analysis aims to share with you some statistics that we believe to be remarkable. (If you wish to know more, we would be more than happy to discuss them with you here – don’t forget to follow us on LinkedIn to keep up with the latest news!)
What we learned by experience is that, on average, the costs of the mere structure (delivery and assembly) can vary between 25% and 35% of the total, even if higher or lower exceptions may occur.
There are too many variables for us to draw a conclusion with any certainty, as a matter of fact we are still racking our brains. Still, what really surprised us was that most people pointed an accusing finger at the lack of culture on the subject: finally, has the scepticism on fire, high costs and durability been wiped away? We have repeatedly dealt with this issue in the past (if you want to know more, we invite you to check out this article on LinkedIn).
What are your own conclusions? What is your opinion? Are there any results that you found particularly surprising?
The debate is open to everyone at this link.
Before saying goodbye, we would like to take a little moment to say a big ‘Thank you!’ to every one of those who wrote us words of encouragement and appreciation for the educational activity we are promoting on our blog. We put a great deal of effort in it, and we are very happy to receive your compliments! Thank you, really.
