Demand for single-family home construction expected to grow in Belarus

MINSK, 16 March (BelTA) – Single-family homes may constitute over 40% of the total volume of housing to be commissioned in Belarus this year. Belarusian First Deputy Architecture and Construction Minister Oleg Shvets made the statement as he visited a wooden house sale venue in Minsk, BelTA has learned.

2022 saw a total of 4.2 million m2 of housing built in Belarus. Single-family homes amounted to about 1.78 million m2. “This year we intend to commission 4.3 million m2 of housing in Belarus in 2023. We expect single-family housing to be close to 1.8 million m2 or 40-50% of the total housing commissioned across the country. If programs on loans for building wooden houses gain traction, demand for single-family home construction will rise,” the official said.

Every oblast presented their own wooden house options at a site located at 52 Logoisky Road, Minsk. Prime Minister of Belarus Roman Golovchenko took a look at the samples on display and set tasks for the civil engineering industry.

According to Oleg Shvets, wood is the most environmentally friendly option for home construction. “Nothing is probably better than wood today. We've passed a number of regulatory acts that will allow people to make what they want. They can order a prefabricated house and resolve the problem of home construction completely. If rural Belarusians need such a house built, there are certain preferences and bank loans for people on the housing register. It will allow people to make a home of their dreams in the end,” the official concluded.
