Skanska has agreed contracts to build a new hospital in Finland and a new emergency healthcare facility for Oslo in Norway.

Skanska’s share of the hospital Oulu University Hospital contract in Finland is worth 190mn. The new ten-story main building, with a total area of about 59,000 square meters, will house functions for emergency rooms, intensive care units, operating rooms, delivery wards and support functions. The new building will replace outdated hospital buildings completed in the 1970’s.

The building consists of two parts built by two alliance consortiums. Skanska is the main contractor in the B alliance. Oulu University Hospital, Caverion, Siemens and Tierna Group, a joint venture of architectural agencies, are also part of the alliance.

Preparatory construction works begun in 2019, and the project is scheduled for completion in phases and will be completed in its entirety by the end of 2023.

The contract for the Oslo City Emergency Centre in Norway is worth around SEK1.6bn. The new emergency centre will be open 24 hours a day and provide healthcare and social services for people living in Oslo. The building, that will be located in the area at Aker Hospital, will among other things consist of seven operating rooms, eight rooms for x-ray diagnostics and about 100 dedicated areas for examination and treatment.

The emergency centre will be built as a passive house and certified according to BREEAM Excellent. The construction site will be fossil-free and Skanska's ambition, together with Omsorgsbygg, is to carry out as much work as possible without emissions. Construction will commence in March 2019 and is scheduled to be completed in mid-2023.
