Skanska builds apartment block in Linköping
Skanska has been assigned to build the first apartment block in HSB’s new Folkets Park neighborhood in Linköping. The order value is estimated to approximately SEK 82 million.
Folkets Park in Linköping dates back to the 1920s. In recent years there haven’t been any activities in the park but now a new apartment block is planned in the area with up to 350 habitations in different forms of tenure. The first is the housing society Dansbanan which Skanska will build.
The apartment block will be an L shaped five storey building of 51 co-operative flats. According to Skanska it is project with focus on sustainability. The aim is to get the building certified according to Miljöbyggnad level SILVER which means that the construction has to live up to high standards as to material choices, indoor environment and energy consumption among others.
The preparatory ground work has been started and the plan is to get the building ready for occupation during the autumn of 2015.
