ÅF wins major hospital assignment in Gothenburg

Continuing to develop healthcare buildings throughout Scandinavia, ÅF’s specialists have won a new hospital assignment for county council property company Västfastigheter. The assignment comprises the technical design of Högsbo Specialist Hospital in Gothenburg. The order value is in the region of 65 million SEK.

In this project, ÅF has committed to delivering an end-to-end solution. The assignment includes geotechnical surveys, structural engineering services and the design of electrical systems, heating, ventilation, sanitation and other technical installations, with a focus on safety and energy efficiency. ÅF's assignment will be ongoing until 2020, at which point the project moves into the construction phase. During the construction period, from 2021 to 2022, ÅF will provide support. The building is to be operational by the fourth quarter of 2022.

"An increasing proportion of our clients are requesting end-to-end commitments. We welcome this development, as it enables us to take a greater responsibility for the interconnection of technical systems, ensuring that they are designed to provide safe and flexible care", says Urban Kumlien, Regional Manager ÅF Buildings.

ÅF has extensive experience of large-scale health care projects in Scandinavia. Some major reference projects are Borås Hospital, Kärnsjukhuset Hospital in Skövde, Danderyds Hospital in Stockholm, MAS in Malmö, Aarhus University Hospital and LHL Hospital Gardermoen.
