NCC selected for new swim center in Linköping

NCC has been commissioned, in partnership with the municipal property company Lejonfastigheter AB, to plan and design a new swim center by the Folkungavallen soccer stadium in Linköping. In the initial phase, the parties will jointly plan, budget and design the new swim center with the aim of reaching an agreement on the construction assignment.  The total order value is expected to amount to approximately SEK 500 million.

“We will construct a state-of-the-art swim center with high energy performance and we are positive to the project being carried out in partnering form. This enables us to identify sustainable and cost-efficient solutions in a well-planned construction process,” says Christian Dahlén, project manager at Lejonfastigheter AB.

In the initial phase of the project, NCC and Lejonfastigheter will jointly prepare a property program, system documents and target price. In the subsequent phase, the actual construction of the project will commence, which is scheduled for the first quarter of 2017.

“NCC has solid experience of building swim and leisure centers. We also have extensive experience of partnering projects and view the model as highly suited to public bath projects which, by their very nature, are highly complex and involve many operators,” says Henrik Landelius, Head of NCC Building Sweden.

The new building will maintain a high standard in terms of energy, indoor environment and choice of material and will have a Silver environmental rating from the Sweden Green Building Council. In addition to a swim center, office space, a restaurant and 3D real estate solution are being planned. The adjacent green area will also be refurbished.

The new swim center is expected to be ready for inauguration in the first quarter of 2021. The order is expected to be registered in the third quarter of 2017 in the Building business area.
