Abstract
Sustainability of cities has become a real challenge for local authorities. According to UN-Habitat, over 60 per cent of the world's population is expected to live in cities by 2030 and nearly 70 per cent by 2050. This urban population increase bring serious challenges related to housing deficits and the sustainability of cities. The construction industry can play a significant role in addressing both these challenges. Current on-site construction methods have environmental problems: energy waste; site disturbance; noise, air and dust pollution as well as solid waste. Moving to pre-fabricated buildings can help mitigate the above-mentioned environmental problems and still provide cost-effective buildings at a reduced timeframe.

Abstract
La présente proposition de valeur résume les conclusions des différentes études menées au Canada et aux États-Unis, lesquelles identifient les menaces ou défis ainsi que les différentes occasions qui se présentent pour l’industrie du bois de la deuxième transformation, en particulier pour les quatre secteurs suivants : revêtements de plancher, patios et terrasses, parements extérieurs et armoires de cuisine. Le but ultime de cette proposition est de dresser les pistes de recherche afin de maintenir ou d’accroître les parts de marché des produits du bois existants ou de gagner des marchés avec des produits novateurs. Ce rapport évalue également les priorités d’actions en fonction des menaces ou défis auxquels l’industrie fait face.
