The hotel will cover an area of 37,000 square meters and have 342 rooms, as well as 16,000 square meters of office space. A two-story parking garage with a total area of 8,600 square meters will be built in the basement. The hotel, which has been designed by BIG, will also feature a 2,000-square-meter wellness center, a skybar, restaurants, shops, a café, a conference center and a rooftop terrace.

“Our customer has worked together with the architect to develop a really exciting hotel project. It is big and demanding, but one of our strengths is that we have the expertise and size to manage a project like this. We’ve been involved in the process from an early stage, and that bodes well for the construction. We’re looking forward to getting started,” says Catarina Molén-Runnäs, Head of Building Nordics.

“It’s not many times in your career that you have the chance to realize a hotel that is extraordinary in so many ways. Aarhus will now gain a very special hotel with life and atmosphere both inside and outside the building. I am pleased that we, the customer, the advisory team, NCC and Aarhus Municipality have come to an agreement on the project and, from Scandic’s perspective, we are looking forward to inviting the entire city to an extraordinary experience in 2026,” says Søren Faerber, Head of Scandic Denmark.

Construction will commence in April 2023 and is scheduled for completion in September 2026.

The order value is approximately SEK 2 billion and will be registered in the NCC Building Nordics business area in the first quarter of 2023.
