Veidekke ASA: To build new head office for SKF
Veidekke’s subsidiary Billström Riemer Andersson Bygg AB has signed a contract to build SKF’s new head office in Gothenburg, Sweden.
The new head office will be located in SKF’s central warehouse in the Gamlestaden area of Gothenburg, thus remaining within SKF’s “cradle". Adapting the company's old central warehouse building to SKF's current needs and ways of working will involve extensive reconstruction of approx. 16,000 square metres.
“We have considered various alternatives but reusing and rebuilding the former central warehouse is clearly the most advantageous, as we will be utilising currently vacant premises, creating new conditions for work across business boundaries and stimulating efficient collaboration and communication. In addition, the building will become more area and energy efficient,” says Christian Johansson, CFO and SVP of SKF.
A sustainable work environment with LEED Gold
The building will provide bright and open spaces for meetings, collaboration and project activities, as well as places to work individually without disruptions. The reconstruction will be completed in accordance with the LEED level Gold sustainability classification, with solutions that reduce energy consumption and aim to increase the well-being of people working in or visiting the building. SKF’s new head office will be ready for occupancy in the summer of 2020.
The SKF Group, based in Gothenburg, Sweden, is a leading global supplier of products, solutions and services within bearings, seals, mechatronics, lubrication systems and services. The company has approx. 45,000 employees.
