Skanska builds in the Nordic region
Skanska signed two new contracts to construct two buildings located in the Nordic region recent days.
The first one was signed with the Swedish National Courts Administration to build new court- and office premises in Sollentuna, Sweden. In connection with the contract writing, the contract is transferred from the Swedish National Courts Administration to Vacse AB. The contract is worth about SEK 420 million, which will be included in the Nordic order bookings for the fourth quarter 2017.
The new building, which will contain courtrooms as well as offices and commercial premises, will be connected with existing Attunda District Court. The project comprises a gross area of about 17 000 sq. meters spread over 15 floors. The building will contain negotiation rooms, safety rooms, training facilities and workplaces. On the ground floor there will be premises for shops and cafes, while the top floor will comprise office premises for other tenants.
The building aims to be certified BREEAM Excellent. BREEAM is an international environmental certification system that is characterized by a holistic thinking of buildings and its impact on the environment.
Construction starts in the fourth quarter of 2017 with planned completion during spring 2020.
