NCC has been commissioned by Fabege AB to construct a 35,000m² office building next to Arenastaden in Solna, Sweden. A project is a design-build contract in partnering form with an order value of approximately €71.2m (SEK 750m).
“We are extremely pleased to continue our good collaboration with NCC in the Arenastaden district. Last year, we realised ICA’s vision for its new head office and won the BREEAM Building of the Year award, so we are looking forward now to working further together on a new, unique office for TietoEVRY,” said Klas Holmgren, Director of Projects and Development Fabege.
The Kvarter Poolen project will serve as TietoEVRY’s new Swedish office. The scheme will also feature a public swimming pool managed by Solna Municipality, which will be constructed in the building under a separate construction contract. The roof will be covered by solar panels and also feature green spaces.
“We look forward to completing another project in partnership with Fabege in Arenastaden, constructing a modern office building with a high sustainability profile. The exciting and innovative architecture will make the building a landmark,” said Henrik Landelius, Business Area Manager of NCC Building Sweden.
The office building will be environmentally classified under the BREEAM Excellent standard, which imposes strict requirements on choice of materials, waste and water management, innovative technical solutions, construction processes and operation. NCC has had previous construction contracts for foundation engineering work for Solna Municipality at the site in question. Construction of the office building will begin immediately and will be ready for occupancy in March 2022.
