NCC to construct Dansmästaren project including 133 rental units in Uppsala
NCC is to construct the Dansmästaren project in partnering form with Uppsalahem AB and Uppsala Parkerings AB. The project will include 133 rental apartments, a parking facility and large premises in the Rosendal district of Uppsala, Sweden. The order value is SEK 290 million.
“Uppsala is expanding at a rapid rate and there is still substantial demand for rental units. With NCC as a partner, we will be able to add a number of much-needed rental units in a new city district,” says Niosha Baghaei, Construction Manager, Uppsalahem AB.
Dansmästaren will be have a strategically important location at the northern entrance of the new Rosendal district. The district will be close to transport links and particularly, the university campus area, which is also likely to be reflected in the people who will live, work and study in the area.
“It is exciting to now start work on the project in Rosendal, which is also our first to be conducted in a partnering format. It is entirely aligned with our owner directives of adding new parking facilities in prime strategic locations throughout the city,” says Gustav Törnquist, Construction and Property Manager, Uppsala Parkerings AB.
Dansmästaren will consist of a six-story building with 133 rental apartments ranging from studio to one-bedroom apartments and adapted for student living. The apartments will be built to meet a Silver environmental rating from the Sweden Green Building Council.
The parking facility will cover an area of nearly 14,500 square meters and feature
about 460 parking spaces, of which 100 will be equipped with charge points for electric cars. The ground floor will house a large 2,200-square-meter premises.
“This is a challenging and exciting project being conducted in partnering form together with Uppsalahem and Uppsala Parkerings AB. Partnering is based on close and transparent dialogue between all of the parties involved throughout the duration of the project, which guarantees the implementation process and ensures a high-quality and sustainable end-product,” says Henrik Landelius, Head of NCC Building Sweden.
Work is expected to commence in February with occupancy scheduled for summer 2020.
