NCC to build two schools for 1,500 students in Nacka

Read original

NCC, in partnership with Nacka Municipality, will build the Boo Gård school and Sigfridsborg school, which will house a total of 1,500 students. The project is part of the strategic partnering arrangement covering the development of preschools, schools and sporting facilities in the municipality. The order value is approximately SEK 520 million.

“Nacka is a growing municipality, and the need for new school places is steadily increasing. By partnering with NCC over a longer period, we benefit from previous experience and can meet the need for more sustainable schools for children and teachers in the municipality,” says Åsa Lundmark, Deputy Head of Unit for Nacka Municipality.

The Boo Gård school will be a three-story construction with space for approximately 800 students from preschool class to grade 9. The school is expanding its operations for senior-level students, and the focus is on integrating the senior levels properly in the design of both indoor and outdoor environments.

The Sigfridsborg school in Älta will have space for approximately 700 students from preschool class to grade 6. It will have a classic two-story design with classrooms, group rooms and a common area. The stairwells have a large grandstand-style design, to serve both as stairs and as a place to gather.

There is a focus on the environment in both school buildings, to provide the students with a healthy indoor climate with good ventilation, a conscious choice of materials and low energy consumption with bedrock heat, free cooling, and solar cells on the roof. The outdoor environments are also being designed with good choice of materials, and will be divided into different zones for different age groups.

Both schools are being built on existing sites where there are schools already standing. The Boo Gård school will be partially demolished before the new school is ready, and the students will be moved to temporary buildings. At the Sigfridsborg school, operations will continue in the existing school during the entire construction period, and will only be demolished once the new school is finished.

“We are continuing to develop the sustainable school buildings of the future in Nacka. Through our close, long-term collaboration in strategic partnering, we take lessons with us between projects and find the best solutions for quality, construction time and cost over time,” says Henrik Landelius, Business Area Manager for NCC Building Sweden.  

Work at the Boo Gård school will begin in the summer of 2019; groundwork at the Sigfridsborg school has already begun. The new schools will be finished for the autumn term in 2021.

The order for the Boo Gård school is worth SEK 273 million and will be registered during the first quarter of 2019. The order for the Sigfridsborg school is worth SEK 250 million and was registered in the fourth quarter of 2018. Both are registered in the NCC Building Sweden business area.

The partnership agreement between NCC and Nacka Municipality was signed in 2015 and runs for six years, with the possibility of an extension for a further three years. The agreement has a potential order value of SEK 2 billion, and order registration takes place in pace with the projects being procured. In total, approximately SEK 900 million has been registered in the collaboration since 2015.
