Veidekke awarded contract by Vasakronan to renovate Sergelhuset in Stockholm
Sergelhuset comprises three renovation projects where Veidekke has been contracted by Vasakronan to renovate the building that faces Sergels Torg in the city centre of Stockholm. The project is a turnkey collaboration contract valued at SEK 475 million.
The contract comprises renovation and new building of 17,400 square metres. The building will be transformed into new, modern office premises to meet the very high expectations from future tenants. Planning and design has started, and construction will start in August 2017 and continue until the summer of 2020.
The project aims for the building to comply with LEED Platinum environmental certification, for a long-term sustainable building.
"We are very pleased and proud that Vasakronan has shown confidence in us to contribute to develop an exciting and important project such as the renovation of Sergelhuset. We will develop our involvement approach further by maximizing ICE (Integrated Concurrent Engineering) in both design and production, to generate higher quality, safer buildings with high productivity and satisfied employees," says Sture Nilsson, regional manager with Veidekke Entreprenad.
