The new building will be an important part of the development regime on the Medicinareberget campus.

Work under the contract is planned to start immediately. Construction is slated to complete in the second quarter of 2023.

In a separate development, the City of Beaverton has selected Skanska for the Patricia Reser Center for the Arts (PRCA) project in Beaverton, Oregon, US.

Under the $59m contract, the company will build a new multidisciplinary arts centre and Creekside Garage.

The centre will feature a theatre with seating space for 550 people, a large lobby for receptions and events, classrooms, meeting and conference space, an art gallery, and a café.

Creekside Garage will be spread across a 14,400m² area and will include 353 parking stalls and ground-level retail space.

Construction on this project has already started this month with completion planned in July 2021.
