NCC has been commissioned by Specialfastigheter to construct the new environmentally certified district court in Lund, Sweden. The order is worth SEK 326 million.
The new district court, which will be built to the left of Lund Central Station and next to the “Kristallen” municipal building, will be a visible and welcome feature of the new cityscape that will meet visitors and the inhabitants of Lund.
The building’s architectural expression will be modern and stylish, while at the same time meeting the stringent security requirements of the district court’s operations. The building will comprise 12,400 square meters, divided over seven floors, one of which will be underground. The façade will mainly be constructed in copper and glass and the base in limestone. The architect is FOJAB arkitekter.
“The challenge of this project will be the logistics of the crowded city location adjacent to the central station, as well as the strict acoustic and security requirements. The design is based on an architectural competition, meaning that robust demands are placed on the finish and final quality of the building. Mockups of both the façade and interior details are being built which will help the project in achieving its goal of zero defects at the final inspection,” says Henrik Landelius, Head of NCC Building in Sweden.
“The Swedish courts are an important customer for us and we work hard to satisfy their high security requirements. We feel gratified and proud that our work on the new district court is now starting up and together with our business partners we are looking forward to completing the new expedient premises,” says Åsa Hedenberg, President of Specialfastigheter.
The building will have the highest certification level, Gold, from the Sweden Green Building Council, meaning that energy consumption will be 38 percent lower than the construction regulations for southern Sweden. The indoor environment features carefully selected materials focusing on sustainability. All materials will be classified as Class A or B in the SundaHus Material Database.
The new district court is scheduled for occupancy in late 2017. The transaction will be registered during the third quarter of 2016 in NCC Building.
