“Flexibility is the watchword for Future IoS Blåsippan Hub, which we are now looking forward to building in partnership with NCC. The building will be multi-purpose, with space for offices and product development, for example” says Niclas Ramström, CEO IKEA Property AB. 

The new building encompasses 17,000 square meters and will primarily accommodate workplaces for IKEA of Sweden AB’s product development. The spaces and installations will be built and designed to ensure a large degree of flexibility, enabling modifications, upgrades and remodeling to be carried out in the future.

The building will be environmentally certified under the BREEAM system, and will comfortably achieve an Outstanding rating.

“IKEA’s high focus on sustainability, alongside the quick start of the project and relatively short construction period, places increased requirements on planning and implementation. NCC has extensive experience of this from previous projects and we look forward to constructing a highly flexible and innovative office in cooperation with IKEA,” says Ulf Jönsson, Business Manager, NCC Building Sweden.

Construction is scheduled to commence in mid-February and the office is expected to be completed in 2023.

The assignment is a design-build contract valued at SEK 340 million and will be registered among orders in the fourth quarter of 2021 in the NCC Building Sweden business area.
