The cooperation that was initiated during the summer of 2020 with joint efforts on the design work and project planning now enters the next phase with the signing of a construction contract. The contract includes further detailed design work, procurements, construction, building commissioning and handover. With its distinct architecture and high ambitions for the project, such as certifying the project in accordance with LEED Platinum v.4 and WELL Gold, Forskaren is sure to be a landmark and a destination in the new urban development area Hagastaden. The project handover is planned to take place in February 2024.
The projects scope is roughly 30.000 sqm gross area. Some advance works are already underway, such as foundation work and the installation of lintels on the tunnel, on which the building will be situated.
– We are extremely proud of being entrusted with bringing this future landmark to fruition together with Vectura, not least for themselves, but also for Hagastaden and the city of Stockholm. We approach this project not only with great humility, but also with confidence, competence, and creative ambition. We are sure that we are going to be a part of creating one of our times, and Stockholms, most exciting buildings. We are just as sure that our cooperative culture and experience of large and complex projects in Stockholm will provide added value to the project, says Mick Salonen Högberg, CEO Zengun.
– Forskaren will be an international hub for innovation within life and health. A place where actors in life science make business and ideas grow. To create this place the construction project itself needs to be world class concerning the quality, sustainability, and innovation. We are really happy to have Zengun as our partner in this endeavour and are sure that they will contribute in realizing our vision, says Petter Ekevärn, Project Development Manager Vectura.
