NCC Construction Sweden has secured a SEK480m (£44m) assignment to construct a new office building at Arlanda Airport.
The client is state-owned airport operator Swedavia and the project will be conducted as a partnering venture between NCC and Swedavia.
Project planning will begin immediately and the start of construction and order registration are scheduled for the first quarter of 2013.
Order registration and the start of construction require the relevant official permits and a final decision on investment by Swedavia.
The new office premises will be named Sense Building and will be part of Airport City Stockholm. The goal of Airport City Stockholm is to achieve sustainable urban development and a vibrant urban environment around Arlanda.

The choice of contractor is a key milestone in this project.”
The project will be conducted as a partnering venture. “We will now have the possibility to continue our partnering work with Swedavia, in which we can contribute our knowledge and experience of office buildings.
