Skanska has signed a contract with Helse Sør Øst to build a psychiatric hospital in Kristiansand, Norway. The contract is worth NOK 530 M, about SEK 530 M, which will be included in the Nordic order bookings for the second quarter 2020.
The new psychiatry building will have an area of 10,750 square meters with 80 beds, of which 10 places are dedicated for child and adolescent psychiatry, outpatient care, treatment rooms and kitchen/dining room and technical rooms.
The building is designed and developed to stimulate the health care and help provide the best treatment for patients through a "healing architecture", good working conditions for the employees and through efficient operation. The building will be constructed according to energy class A with a reduced carbon footprint.
The project starts immediately. The building is expected to be completed in April 2023.
Skanska is one of the leading development- and construction companies in the Nordics, with operations in building construction and civil engineering in Sweden, Norway and Finland, and developing residential- and commercial property projects in select home markets. The commercial development stream is also active in Denmark. Skanska had sales of about SEK 70 billion and more than 15,200 employees in its Nordic operations during 2019.
