First project in Växjö for Serneke
Serneke has signed a declaration of intent to build 152 apartments in the Lågan block in central Växjö, Sweden. The project is the company’s first in the city and the order value is around SEK 285 million.´
On behalf of Brf Linnégatan Lågan and Brf Norrtullsgatan Lågan tenant-owners’ associations, Serneke will build apartments in two phases under the project name “Gateway to the city”. The project is developed by Scanprop Development AB.
“A major project for a new client and in a new city. It will be both exciting and motivating to get started with this,” said Viktor Nagenius, Construction Manager at Serneke.
“For some time, we have been looking at the possibility of establishing business in Växjö. It’s an attractive, expansive city and the establishment is in line with our overall strategy,” said Daniel Åstenius, Managing Director of Serneke Construction.
This project is special, both considering the central location and the design of the buildings. All apartments are outfitted with at least one balcony or patio and the buildings will also be given large common roof terraces.
“Several building contractors saw problems in constructing the buildings because of the different design, including arched balconies. Serneke was the contractor that was not afraid of seeking solutions so we get what we want. We are looking forward to Serneke’s establishment as a new contractor in Växjö, which the market really needs,” said Christian Fredrikson at Scanprop Development AB.
Construction in the project will begin in early 2017 and initial occupancy is scheduled for late summer 2018.
Serneke is a rapidly growing corporate group active in construction, civil engineering, project development and property management with around 800 employees. Through novel thinking, we drive development and create more effective and more innovative solutions for responsible construction. The business has a good mix of public and commercial assignments, providing strength over economic cycles.
