NCC and Region Örebro County build new county hospital

Region Örebro County is continuing its investment in highly specialized care and has commissioned NCC to construct a new county hospital in Örebro. The project will take the form of a partnering project.

The new building, the H building, will replace existing premises that no longer meet current requirements.

“The H building is Region Örebro County’s major investment for the future and provides us with excellent prerequisites to continue to operate and develop highly specialized care moving forward. We look forward to a solid partnership with NCC working on this large and important project,” says Marie-Louise Forsberg Fransson (S), Chairman of the Board, Region Örebro County.  

The H building will contain residential care, outpatient care and surgery for areas including ear, nose and throat (ENT), dermatology, anesthesia and emergency care clinics. It will be a challenge to build the new hospital with as little impact as possible on ongoing operations at the existing hospital.

“We are pleased with the confidence shown in us by Region Örebro County. NCC has extensive experience of building major hospitals, which we will utilize in this project. A partnering project such as this means that, at an early stage, we can plan together with the Region to obtain the best results,” says Svante Hagman, Business Area Manager at NCC Construction Sweden.

The project will comprise both new construction and refurbishment work. The old hospital and the new H building will have a shared entrance and the emergency unit will also be refurbished. The new building will be constructed according to Sweden Green Building Council (SGBC) Gold and much focus will be devoted to energy efficiency.

NCC and Region Örebro County will run the project in partnership, and the first steps are preparing the project organization, project planning, construction documents and the budget. The total order value is estimated at SEK 1 billion. The order is expected to be registered in the first quarter of 2016 in the new NCC Building business area.
