WCN Editorial Team 26 Mar 2020 EUROPE BUILDINGS

Swedish construction company NCC has announced plans to invest more than SEK2.4bn ($237.2m) to build two new healthcare buildings in the country.

In collaboration with Region Sörmland, the company plans to expand each of the Mälar Hospital in Eskilstuna and Nyköping Hospital by adding a new wing for emergency care.

The new buildings will comprise emergency units, operating theatres and central sterile supply departments (CSSDs). The Mälar Hospital and Nyköping Hospital will cover 45,000m2 and 8,500m2 respectively.

NCC said it plans to add a new main entrance, and wards for maternity, neonatal care and cardiology at the Mälar Hospital.

Region Sörmland construction management project manager Johnny Niskanen said: “With two new emergency wards, E62 and N54, we are continuing to expand and remodel in order to meet future health and medical care requirements in the Sörmland region.

“These are large and complex construction projects in which partnering is the best collaboration format, in terms of both quality and price, and historically we have positive experiences from past collaborations with NCC.”

NCC is planning to commence earth and groundworks on the new project in the near future. The building at Nyköping Hospital is planned to be completed by the end of 2022 while the healthcare building at Mälar Hospital will be commissioned in spring 2025.

NCC Building Sweden business area manager Henrik Landelius said: “It is a complex process to build emergency care wards involving comprehensive installation work and with high standards regarding advanced medical-technical equipment.

“With NCC’s broad experience of hospital construction projects, we can project design and construct both hospitals in parallel in order to create synergies. Production time can therefore be shortened, costs can be minimized, and we can achieve better quality with the best interests of the patients in mind.”

The investment forms part of the strategic partnering arrangement signed between NCC and Region Sörmland in June 2015.

The arrangement calls for expanding and remodelling three hospitals including Kullbergska Hospital, Mälar Hospital and Nyköping Hospital.

Last year, NCC was selected by Swedish housing company Riksbyggen to build 225 apartments in Berga Park, Linköping.
