Swedish Gov't Signs Build to Suit for $102 Million Detention Facility Near Stockholm

Skanska Web Site - January 9, 2008

Skanska will be responsible for a total solution, including planning, construction, operation and maintenance of the new detention facility in Sollentuna, north of Stockholm. The construction project is valued at an estimated SEK 650 M and is being included in order bookings for the first quarter.

A 25-year lease has been signed with Kriminalvården (Swedish Prison and Probation Service) for the new detention facility. The 23,600-square-meter facility will house 10 floors with 240 detention cells and an administration section.

Construction will be carried out by Skanska Sweden and begins in January 2008, with completion scheduled for spring 2010. The new detention facility will be located adjacent to the existing police station and the new Attunda courthouse, which is currently under construction by Skanska in a similar type of project.

In similar projects, Skanska has developed, built and been responsible for leasing of premises in Sweden to the police, the public prosecutor office and correctional authorities in Uppsala, Växjö, Flemingsberg and Malmö. Sphere: Related Content
