Public Private Partnerships
When the first patients arrive at New Karolinska Solna sometime in 2016, they will be offered customized care in one of the world’s most sustainable university hospitals. New Karolinska Solna is Skanska’s largest project ever and is being operated and financed under a public-private-partnership.
New Karolinska Solna is being developed with a focus on patients. This means that everything from architectural plans to the operation of the completed hospital will be based on patients’ privacy, safety and comfort. All patients will receive a single room and be offered what is known as thematic care, meaning that a team of medical experts and specialists will work together to treat them in their rooms, rather than requiring them to be transferred between hospital departments for different therapies.
The association with Karolinska Institutet, one of the world’s leading medical universities, is given high priority, bringing the two institutions even closer to one another, on either side of Solnavägen. Through increased proximity, new research from the university will be incorporated into daily work at the hospital faster, in the form of clinical trials, enhanced working methods or new medication.
The entire construction production is a green workplace, featuring environmentally compatible solutions for amenities such as transportation and waste management. The completed hospital will become one of the world’s first university hospitals to be environmentally certified. The goal is to achieve the gold level in Environmentally Classified Building standard and at least gold level in the LEED international certification system. Energy supplies will also be environmentally compatible, in the form of onsite production of geothermal heating and other renewable energy.
Long-term approach through public-private-partnership
With a contract value of SEK 14.5 billion, New Karolinska Solna is Skanska’s largest project ever and is being conducted in partnership with the British investment fund Innisfree. The project is an example of a public-private-partnership (PPP), which aims to create added-value to projects compared with traditional procurement processes. The basis is a long-term agreement between the public sector as the customer and a private party as the contractor. For New Karolinska Solna, Skanska and Innisfree will be in charge of financing, construction, building, and the operation and maintenance of the new hospital until 2040.

The schedule stipulates 16 years from concept to completed hospital. The actual construction was initiated in 2010 and the entire hospital is scheduled to be fully commissioned by 2017. We have compiled the project’s key milestones below.
2001The concept of a new university hospital was initiated in the County Council. A number of evaluations ensued in the years to come.
2005A decision was made to advance planning of a new university hospital and a design contest was announced.
2006The design competition was decided – a jury named the proposal from White architects as the winning contribution.
2007The winning contribution was developed and preparatory work commenced.
2008In April, a decision was made to construct New Karolinska Solna and in June it was decided that PPP (public-private-partnership) would be used as the financing model. Read more about PPP.
2009The tendering process began in March 2009.
2010On May 4, the County Council decided that a consortium including Skanska and the UK company Innisfree will be tasked with financing, constructing and operating the new hospital.
On September 3, Crown Princess Victoria breaks ground (in the form of a controlled blast) at a ceremony on the construction site.
2011Construction is fully under way and the foundation is established for the new hospital buildings. Sweden’s largest construction trailer site is officially opened.
2012In January, a public exhibition is opened at the Karolinska Hospital, presenting the future university hospital.
The parking garage will be the first building that is completed in the area.
2014The technical building will be completed.
2016The hospital building, hotel and research building will be finished and the first patients will arrive at New Karolinska Solna.
2017The new hospital will be completed and fully operational. Service positions will be managed by Coor Service Management.
The construction of New Karolinska Solna is Skanska’s largest project ever and this is apparent in many ways – in the work force, consumption of materials, construction trailers, contract value and so forth. We have compiled figures that detail the scope of the project.
The figures are from year-end 2011.
