NCC to Build Liseberg’s New Water Park and Hotel
In partnership with Liseberg, NCC will extend the largest amusement park in the Nordic region. The assignment includes a water park, a themed destination hotel and parking facilities in the city centre of Gothenburg. Liseberg, through the Liseberg Skår development company, has budgeted the assignment at approximately EUR 194M.
The assignment is a partnering arrangement between NCC and Liseberg. NCC will initially conduct infrastructure works, ground-level parking and a planned parking facility. Construction will then begin on a themed destination hotel of just over 30,000 square meters with more than 450 rooms. The final stage will be the construction of the water park, which will be 18,000 square meters with space for 2,800 visitors and include about ten water slides and pools.
“Running a project in partnership offers an optimal work method for complex and major construction assignments and enables a better final product. Our extensive experience of building swimming halls and leisure centers, together with our water and environmental expertise in NCC Badhus, will be highly valuable when we now construct one of the Sweden’s largest water parks,” says Henrik Landelius, Head of NCC Building Sweden.
Project engineering work will start in May. When the parties have agreed on the next stage, construction will begin of the ground-level parking, which is scheduled to be completed ahead of the 2019 season. The hotel and water park are expected to be completed between 2021 and 2023 and are estimated to be registered among orders in the third quarter of 2019.
