NCC to build swimming complex in Varberg

In cooperation with Varbergs Fastighets AB, NCC will design and build a new swimming complex in Varberg, Sweden. The assignment will be carried out as a partnering arrangement and comprise two phases. The total order value is expected to amount to approximately SEK 350 million.

“Varberg is growing and this new swimming complex will be the municipality’s single largest investment to date. It will be designed to meet residents’ need for leisure, recreation and social activities,” says Ann-Charlotte Stenkil (Moderate Party), Chairman of the Municipal Executive Board. The investment also represents a step toward achieving the goal of developing Varberg into a municipality with an exciting and innovative range of cultural and sporting activities.

The municipality’s existing pool was opened in the early 1980s and is currently in need of extensive renovations. The new complex, which will be situated in the same location as the old facility, will feature a 50-meter pool and accommodate approximately 300,000 visitors per year.

The assignment comprises a turnkey contract divided into two phases. During the first phase, the partners will design the construction project and agree on a target cost for the project. During the second phase they will demolish the existing facility and concentrate on construction. The assignment also includes groundwork and other work related to the outdoor environment, other equipment in the swimming complex and installation work.

“We are now continuing our successful partnership with Varberg Municipality, where we are already building a number of schools,” says Henrik Landelius, Head of NCC Building in Sweden.

Work on the first phase will begin during autumn/winter 2017 and the new swimming complex is expected to be completed in early 2021. The order is expected to be registered in the third quarter of 2018 in the NCC Building business area.
