NCC is to modernize the Ryhov County Hospital through extensive refurbishment and renovation as part of its framework agreement with Region Jonkoping. The project will be carried out as part of a strategic partnering agreement with an order value of c. €18.6m.
Ryhov County Hospital. The buildings in the front of the picture have previously been built by NCC for Region Jonkoping, and the brown houses in the background are now to be renovated.
The contract is the first of three separate subprojects that are part of the Akutsparet project and for which suborders are placed independently. In this subproject, NCC will remodel nursing wards to create single rooms with their own WC and shower, build an integrated rehabilitation ward and install new technical systems for the entire building. The contract also includes the renovation of the clinic, day care centre and rehabilitation facility for stroke and neurological care.
“Effective cooperation between Region Jonkoping and NCC through the partnering agreement for Akutsparet has culminated in an order for the first subproject for the Ryhov County Hospital. This cooperation paves the way for subsequent stages in the partnering agreement,” said Thomas Svard, construction project manager at Regionfastigheter Jonkoping.
Hospital construction places high demands on state-of-the-art and technical solutions that must function effectively over time. NCC has solid experience of new construction and refurbishment and expansion of existing hospital buildings. For some time now, NCC has been involved in several hospital projects, including in Vasteras, Eskilstuna, Gavle and Nykoping. The Ryhov County Hospital was built between 1980 and 1988 by a consortium comprising ABV, SIAB and Skanska. ABV and SIAB are now part of NCC. During 2018–2020, NCC carried out an expansion and modernization of the hospital.
“It is extremely gratifying to be part of constructing the healthcare of the future together with Region Jonkoping at Ryhov County Hospital. As Sweden’s largest hospital builder, with many specialists and extensive experience from other hospitals, we are convinced that we can guarantee a result that meets future healthcare needs,” said Andreas Saltin, Commercial Manager, NCC Building Sweden.
