Nordic construction company NCC has announced its plans to partner with Region Gävleborg to renovate and expand Gävle Hospital’s entry building, Hus 60, in Sweden.
The estimated value of this turnkey contract, which is being delivered in partnering form, is Skr430m.
The hospitals in both Hudiksvall and Gävle (under the umbrella term ‘Framtidsbygget’) will be upgraded to offer advanced health and medical services in the future.
The Hus 60 project will be the first under the scope of Framtidsbygget in Gävle.
Region Gävleborg Gästrikland construction project manager John Dahlgren said: “I’m delighted that we can now start the construction work. This is a crucial investment in modern premises that will enable a good work environment for our employees as well as a safe and secure environment for our patients.”
The scope of NCC’s work includes the addition of six storeys to the existing building and a rooftop helipad, which will enhance transportation to and from the hospital.
