“I am extremely happy and proud that we can now finally start building new rental units in Uppsala. We are now turning the first sod and continuing our efforts to make Uppsala an even better city for students,” says Mattias Tegefjord, CEO, Uppsalahem.

The project, known as ‘Fältläkaren,’ is located in Uppsala. NCC has been contracted to build 276 new apartments, distributed between three buildings with five floors. The apartments will have 1-2 rooms and range from 25-40 square meters.

Over the past 15 years, the parties have completed more than 2,000 residential units together. The sod-turning ceremony for Fältläkaren and another 276 units will be held on June 21.

“The planning process together with Uppsalahem was very rewarding. By challenging the local plan, we managed to increase the number of square meters to an area corresponding to about 25 additional apartments. The student apartments are functional and will be a long-awaited addition to the student housing market in Uppsala,” says Henrik Landelius, Head of NCC Building Sweden.

The first occupancy is expected toward the end of 2024 and the project is scheduled for completion in 2026. The contract value is approximately SEK 260 million and the order will be registered in the NCC Building Sweden business area in the second quarter of 2023.
