NCC Construction secures contract to build hospital in Sweden

11 Nov 2012

NCC Construction Sweden has won a SEK400m ($59.4m) contract from Västfastigheter to build Angered Hospital in Sweden, which will be Sweden's first newly-built community hospital.

NCC Construction Sweden has won a SEK400m ($59.4m) contract from Västfastigheter to build Angered Hospital in Sweden, which will be Sweden’s first newly-built community hospital.

Located in Angered Centrum, the hospital will spread across an area of 18,000m² and will house specialist clinics, operating theatres and a district health centre.

Angered Hospital will be designed around the patient and will facilitate cooperation between treatment areas.

Planning and preparations are well underway ahead of the start of construction, which is expected to begin at the start of 2013.

The hospital will be built under a partnership agreement, with completion scheduled for 2015.

Under the partnership agreement the property developer, consultants and contractors will carry out the construction task.

Before the opening of the hospital, some specialist clinics will function from temporary homes in Angereds Torg and will move to the new building when it is completed.

Västfastigheter property director Lars Janson said NCC as a partner will help in achieving environmental objectives.

"Together, we will be able to create spaces that will satisfy the needs of the hospital and ultimately the city’s inhabitants," Janson said.

NCC Construction Western Region department manager Fredrik Johansson said the construction of the hospital will greatly benefit the public in the north east of Gothenburg.

"Partnering is a work method that is well suited to the production of hospital buildings since it allows a process in which decisions about technical care solutions can be made closer to the opening date and gives us secure control over the project’s final cost, date of completion and quality," Johansson said.
