The buildings are built in an industrialized process in a factory with a solid wood frame which gives a significantly lower climate impact compared to traditional construction methods and the buildings will have an energy use that is about half of the requirement in BBR which will contribute to SBB's sustainability goals to be climate neutral in the year 2030.

In addition to the fact that the climate goals can be achieved, the large number of apartments creates jobs for people who are outside the labour market. Jobs will mainly be created in the factory where the houses are manufactured but also at the construction sites around the country.

“This is a unique investment where SBB takes great social responsibility for both housing production, the labor market and the climate. Our building rights are located in attractive areas throughout Sweden and it is now time to seriously and in large volumes refine the land," says Ilija Batljan, Founder and CEO, Samhällsbyggnadsbolaget i Norden AB.

To further ensure that production takes place in accordance with SBB's ambitious sustainability goals and to drive industry development, SBB has become as a shareholder in Sizes Works with an ownership share of 14 percent.
