Skanska expands S:t Görans Hospital in Stockholm, Sweden, for about SEK 1.3 billion
Skanska has signed a contract with Locum to rebuild and expand S:t Görans Hospital in Stockholm, Sweden. The contract is worth about SEK 1.3 billion, which will be included in the Nordic order bookings for the second quarter 2017.
The project includes rebuilding of existing hospital buildings and two completely new buildings that will contain facilities for care and treatment, delivery and reception. The preliminary size is about 29,000 square meters of new construction and about 5,000 square meters of conversion.
The refurbished and new buildings will increase the capacity with about 6,000 visits, which corresponds to an extension of 62 ward units, and S:t Göran will also accommodate a new maternity department in a new building with room for 4,000 deliveries. The capacity for acute patients increases from 79,000 to 100,000 visits and the hospital receives an expanded mission in planned care, for example in neurology, infection, pulmonary medicine and urology as well as breast cancer care.
The intention is that the rebuilt and newly constructed buildings at S:t Göran will be certified according to Miljöbyggnad, a certification for new and existing buildings focusing on energy, indoor environment and materials. The environmental classification system Miljöbyggnad is administered by the Swedish Green Building Council.
Preparatory work began in the first quarter 2017 and the project is scheduled to be completed during the fourth quarter 2020.
