NCC to expand Södersjukhuset for SEK 1 billion

NCC has been commissioned by Locum to expand the Södersjukhuset Hospital in Stockholm by adding a new treatment center and an operation and maintenance building. The order is worth about SEK 1 billion and will be registered among orders in three stages.

Stockholm is growing and needs new emergency hospitals, operating theaters and beds.

“With these expansions, Södersjukhuset is preparing itself for society’s increasing need for surgical capacity, emergency hospitals and more beds,” says Svante Hagman, Head of business area NCC Construction Sweden.

Locum also aims to have the new buildings certified according to Sweden Green Building Council (SGBC) Gold, the highest SGBC classification.

NCC’s assignment includes two buildings. The first comprises a treatment center with new operating theaters, a sterile center, a unit for postmortem examinations and a large new emergency unit. The second unit will house the hospital’s operational functions such as a center for managing the hospital’s waste and refuse, and emergency power. Up to 400 people will be working on the project. 

The new hospital buildings are expected to be ready at year-end 2018. When the new emergency unit opens in 2019, it will be the largest of its kind in Sweden.

“The Stockholm region is expanding rapidly and the new emergency unit is a key element of the future planning for health and medical care in Stockholm County, where all residents must be confident that they will receive the right care at the right time,” says Paul Lindquist, Chairman of Locum.

NCC and Locum will conduct the project on a collaborative basis, with the first steps comprising project engineering, planning and costing ahead of production start. The contract is divided into three subprojects, which will be recognized successively as orders as the project progresses. The first subproject will be registered among orders during the third quarter of 2015 in the NCC Construction Sweden business area. The two remaining parts of the project will probably be registered among orders during 2016.
