Skanska will be responsible for a total solution including pre-engineering, construction, operation and maintenance of the new courthouse for the SÃ¶dertÃ¶rn District Court in Flemingsberg, south of Stockholm. A 20-year lease has been signed with Swedish National Courts Administration. The construction assignment is valued at about SEK 300 million.
'The courthouse building in Flemingsberg will be the third largest in Sweden,' according to Mats Engvall, Project Manager, Skanska Sweden. 'The building is about 13,300 square meters and will house a secretariat section and a public section with 19 courtrooms, including a high-security courtroom for sensitive cases.'
Construction begins in February 2005 and occupancy of the new premises is scheduled for year-end 2006.
The new courthouse will be built adjacent to the police station and jail in Flemingsberg. This is yet another step in the development of Flemingsberg as regional hub in the southern Stockholm area.
Skanska has previously been contracted for similar assignments to develop, build and be responsible for leasing of premises to the police, district attorney offices and the National Prison and Probation Administration in Uppsala and VÃ¤xsjÃ¶, Sweden.
