Skanska has signed a 10-year lease agreement with its own Gothenburg operations to move into just over 5,300 square meters in the Citygate office project in Gårda, Gothenburg. The occupancy will begin take place during the summer of 2022.
The office building with its strong sustainability profile will be 36 storeys high, corresponding to 144 meters, and will have a total leasable area of approximately 42,000 square meters. To create additional positive imprint in connection with the project, Skanska, together with the City of Gothenburg, has developed sustainability initiatives where the project takes extensive social responsibility to promote employment among young adults in the neighbourhood. For example, the project has extensive collaborations with schools regarding programs for mentoring and homework assistance. This is a project that also creates healthy workplaces with the ambition to certify according to WELL and LEED.
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.
