NCC wins expansion of three Swedish hospitals

30 Jun 15 NCC has won a SEK3bn (£229m) contract to refurbish and extend three hospitals in Södermanland in Sweden.

The partnership with Sörmland County Council will start immediately with work on the planning and the aim is that the upgrades to the hospitals in Eskilstuna, Katrineholm and Nyköping will be completed within eight years.

Work will be carried out under a strategic partnering arrangement under which all planning and implementation will be conducted jointly by Sörmland County Council and NCC. Strategic partnering is seen as the key to higher quality and lower costs.

“With NCC’s expertise and capacity by our side, we feel sure the project can be completed in a professional manner,” said Sörmland County Council technical manager Johnny Niskanen.

At Mälarsjukhuset hospital in Eskilstuna - the single largest part of the project - some older premises will be demolished, others upgraded and new premises built. The combination of new construction and upgrade will also be applied at the other two.

The new premises will have significantly reduced energy consumption and improved operating costs, as well as a better work environment will be enhanced and a more efficient care process.
