The block, which will comprise 13,600 square meters of housing and premises, has been developed by Skanska Hyresbostäder and is a part of Barkarbystaden, where Skanska in addition to housing also develops an elderly care home, a hotel and workplaces.
The block is being built in accordance with Skanska’s own sustainability label which is called “Skanska Hållbar Hyresbostad” meaning high sustainability requirements. The construction uses, for example, climate-compensated concrete such as Skanska green concrete, which gives up to 50 percent lower climate impact than traditional concrete. In addition, the roofs are equipped with solar cells that supply the building with property electricity.
The block is under construction and the apartments will be ready for occupancy in December 2023.
