NCC Construction has been commissioned to extend the ICA Maxi hypermarket in Skövde. The assignment is worth SEK 180 million (c. €18m) and was ordered by AB Skövde Köpmannen 2, which is owned by Eurocommercial Properties Sweden AB. The new shopping complex is scheduled for completion during autumn 2008.
As a result of the project, which is currently being initiated at the Norrmalm retail park in Skövde, retail space at ICA Maxi will be expanded by approximately 10,000 m². In addition to an expansion of the Maxi hypermarket by 2,500 m², the extension will encompass five new retail premises.
"Shopping space in Skövde is currently being expanded at a considerable pace, which is leading to more retail activity and increased numbers of job opportunities. In October 2006, we completed the Commerce shopping center and construction of a new Netto supermarket will commence during the autumn," says Mikael Nykvist, Business Manager at NCC Construction in Skövde.
An average of 50 people will be employed in the retail project during the construction period.
The project will be registered among NCC orders during the third quarter of 2007.
