NCC to build two schools in Uppsala

NCC, in partnership with Uppsala Skolfastigheter AB, is developing two new school buildings in Bälinge outside Uppsala. The project is a partnering arrangement and Skolfastigheter estimates the order value at around SEK 450 million.

“Uppsala’s population is growing, as is the need for new schools and preschools. That’s why we’re now investing in upgrading our school environments. NCC has long and extensive experience of building schools, and also with working in different cooperative formats, which was important for us when conducting this procurement,” says Annelie Johansson, CEO of Skolfastigheter. 

In Bälinge, where both Bälinge school and Bälingeby preschool have long been in need of upgrades, the old school buildings will be demolished to make space for the new, larger premises with room for an increased number of students. In total, the project encompasses around 11,000 square meters and includes a kitchen/cafeteria and sports hall in addition to the school and preschool.

NCC won the contract in competition with twelve other tenderers and received the highest rating on all the soft evaluation criteria, for example project organization.

“NCC is one of the construction companies building the most schools in Sweden today, and we’ll leverage that experience and know-how in building in Bälinge. Together with Skolfastigheter, we’ll develop solutions for modern and sustainable schools that will give students and staff the best possible work environment for learning and growing,” says Henrik Landelius, Business Area Manager of NCC Building Sweden.

The project is being conducted in a partnering cooperative format. Work will begin during the first quarter of 2020, with a planning and project engineering phase, where the documentation will be jointly developed in order to come to an agreement on the target cost for the assignment.

If the project is carried out between the parties, the approximately SEK 450 million order value will be registered among orders in the NCC Building Sweden business area upon signing of the construction contract.

Construction is scheduled to start in the second quarter of 2021 and the schools are expected to be ready early summer 2024.
