Fotsacken is part of the City of Stockholm’s largest development project, which has the goal of constructing thousands of new rental units. Cooperation is now being initiated between NCC and Stockholmshem for the construction of 91 new rental units within the Fotsacken 1 project.
NCC’s assignment comprises the new construction of 91 rental apartments, which will be distributed across four buildings with a mix of four to five stories. The apartments will range from one-bedroom to four-bedroom units, with most being one-bedroom or two-bedroom. To minimize production costs, no basement storage rooms or laundry rooms are to be constructed. Instead, these will be included in each apartment.
“Stockholm is growing and we are pleased to have been entrusted with part of the production of more rental apartments and residential units for the city. We have a long history of cooperation with Stockholmshem and are looking forward to yet another project,” says Annika Grönberg, Head of Department, NCC Building Sweden.
The buildings are being constructed with the ambition of achieving Sweden Green Building Council, Silver level. Several of the buildings will have green roofs or solar cells on the roof.
Fotsacken is part of Stockholmshusen, which is a partnership project between public housing companies, private entrepreneurs and the Technical Services Department of the City of Stockholm, with the objective of increasing the pace of construction and meeting the large need for more rental units in Stockholm.
The project is a turnkey contract in partnering form with an order value of approximately SEK 180 million. Construction is expected to start in the spring of 2022 and to be completed in the spring of 2024. The order will be registered during the first quarter of 2022 in the NCC Building business area.
