The development will span a gross area of 5,600m² and incorporate a production kitchen featuring reserve power and water systems.  

To mitigate its climate impact, Åmål Municipality has opted for the use of climate-improved concrete while large parts of the bearing frame will feature cross-laminated timber.

Peab region manager Nils Staffansson said: “We’re very happy to be entrusted with building this assisted living in Åmål. The project has a significant climate focus and Peab has sustainable solutions that fit in perfectly with the project. We look forward to getting started.” 

Construction is scheduled to commence this month to complete the project in time for occupancy by the first quarter (Q1) of 2026.  

The project will be recorded in Peab’s order books for Q1 2024.

This month, Peab also secured a €19m contract to construct a pilot platform facility for clean energy in Espoo, Finland. 

The contract, commissioned by the VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland, entails the construction of a two-storey addition to the VTT Bioruukki pilot centre and the upgrading of the existing building.
