Skanska builds care home in Bergen, Norway, for NOK 370 M, about SEK 380 M
Skanska has signed a contract with the Municipality of Bergen to build Åsane care home in Bergen, Norway. The contract is worth NOK 370 M, about SEK 380 M, which will be included in the Nordic order bookings for the second quarter 2020.
The new care home will be approximately 10,300 square meters and contain 100 accommodation units as well as common functions such as living room, kitchen, activity room and a doctor’s office. The project consists of four buildings that will be between three and four storeys high and built around a common core, which ensures both good communication between the departments and will create a valuable space for the residents outside. A roof terrace will be built at the top of one of the wings.
The buildings will be equipped with a large solar cell plant on the roof and erected with extensive use of solid wood. The project meets passive house standards and will be environmentally certified according to BREEAM-NOR.
Construction is expected to start in June 2020 with completion in September 2022.
Skanska is one of the leading development- and construction companies in the Nordics, with operations in building construction and civil engineering in Sweden, Norway and Finland, and developing residential- and commercial property projects in select home markets. The commercial development stream is also active in Denmark. Skanska had sales of about SEK 70 billion and more than 15,200 employees in its Nordic operations during 2019.
