NCC has been commissioned by Region Sörmland to construct a new healthcare building at Nyköping Hospital, southwest of Stockholm. The order value is Kr260m (US$27.6m).
The hospital’s new entrance will be located in the building, which will also house clinics and nursing wards.
“The new entrance blends well into the surroundings and will be a major improvement for the hospital,” said Michael Lindberg, project manager at Nyköping Hospital.
The new healthcare building encompasses around 12,000 square meters across eight floors and is located adjacent to the old entrance of Nyköping Hospital. The hospital’s new main entrance will be located on two floors and feature a café and pharmacy. The healthcare building will also include an MRI unit with MRI scanners, nursing wards and a medical laboratory.
“The assignment is complex, structurally speaking, because N55 will be connected to the older existing hospital buildings. The new building will be a very important hub for the hospital, for visitors as well as employees and operations, and it is with the utmost consideration for ongoing operations that we continue to create premises that meet future healthcare needs in Sörmland,” said Henrik Landelius, business area manager of NCC Building Sweden.
The preparatory groundwork has begun and the healthcare building is expected to be completed by year-end 2021.
