Skanska builds rental apartments for Uppsalahem in Uppsala, Sweden, for SEK 300 M
Skanska has been commissioned by Uppsalahem to build 187 rental apartments in the area Luthagen, Uppsala, Sweden. The project is the first to be recognized within a three-year framework agreement and is worth about SEK 300 million, which is included in the order bookings for Skanska Sweden for the fourth quarter of 2015.
Skanska will build space-efficient rental apartments for families as well as for young people. The project represents the fourth and final stage of Uppsalahem in the area adjacent Minnie Ekholm's place in Luthagen.
The houses will meet high sustainability standards and the intention is that they will be certified according to Svanen. This means that they should meet high standards of energy efficiency, materials and indoor environment. The framework also has high ambitions in implementing social sustainability, including internships for long-term unemployed.
The project will begin immediately and the houses will be ready for occupancy in August 2018.
