Skanska builds 158 apartments in central Gothenburg for SEK 377M
Skanska develops and constructs three multi-family buildings with 158 apartments in Johanneberg, Gothenburg, Sweden. The project entails a construction contract worth SEK 377M, which will be included in the order bookings for Skanska Sweden for the first quarter in 2016.
The project includes two nine-storey buildings, one building with 17 floors and parking decks on two levels. The buildings will also have seven business premises on the ground floor. All the apartments are now sold.
The buildings will meet high sustainability standards and the intention is that they will be certified according to ecolabel the Swan. This means high demands on energy efficiency, materials and indoor environment. There are also requirements for quality and a sustainable building process.
Construction has already started and the intention is that the project will be completed during the fall 2018.
