Skanska has secured additional contracts worth SEK4.2bn (£348m) from Region Skåne for the construction of a new healthcare building in Malmö, Sweden.

The company stated that it will include the order in its Swedish order bookings for the third quarter of this year.

The building is part of the development that Region Skåne is carrying out in the hospital area in Malmö.

The new healthcare building will include two towers of 10 and 11 floors, interconnected with culverts and connecting corridors. With space to accommodate more than 2,200 rooms, the building will be a workplace for more than 2,000 people.

With the healthcare building, the hospital area will increase with more than 100,000m² of new space for operating rooms, care and intensive care.

Construction of the remaining stages of the building is expected to start immediately and it will be open for patients in 2024.

The aim of the building is to be certified as level silver, in accordance with Miljöbyggnad, a certification system for newly produced and existing buildings focusing on energy, choice of materials and indoor environment.

Earlier this month, the company signed a contract with Six South Partners, an affiliate of Charleston for the construction of a residential apartment building in Nashville, Tennessee. The 12-storey, 41,600m² residential apartment will include street-level retail space.

The project will include studio, one- and two-bedroom unit apartments as well as an amenity level, featuring a pool on top of the parking garage.

The building’s construction began this month and it is scheduled for completion in August 2021.

In August this year, Skanska was selected by Trafikverket, the Swedish Transport Administration, to build double lanes for the freight railway Hamnbanan, the Eriksberg-Pölsebo stage, in Gothenburg, Sweden. The contract is valued at SEK1.3bn (£107m).

The extension will be 1,900m of which 1,100m will a tunnel, north of the existing single track. The project will also include the construction of temporary tracks to divert traffic, demolishing an existing facility including a bridge, new pedestrian and cycle paths, new football field, along with building a new clubhouse for Eriksbergs IF.
