Nordec has been selected as the frame contractor of Park Central office project in Gothenburg
Nordec and NCC Sverige AB signed supplier agreement for the Park Central project on 22nd December 2022. The Park Central project will have a floor area of approximately 40 000 m² and it will be built next to Gothenburg Central Railway Station and Västlänken station center. Both contract parties have jointly agreed that the value of the contract is not to be disclosed.
The project signed is the first phase of a larger development project in the area, which will develop public transportation, the Västlänken station center, and a new city block. The project includes the design, manufacture, delivery and installation of steel, concrete and glulam products.
Nordec has already participated in the project development phase together with the customer and the developer to find optimal solutions. The project has some unique traits comparing to other similar projects, which includes the construction site on top of the functional train tunnels and the air conditioning engine rooms made of CLT wood elements and glulam structures to be installed on the roof of the building. The target is to certify the building to class BREEAM Excellent. BREEAM is the world’s leading science-based suite of validation and certification systems for a sustainable built environment.
The next phase of the construction design will start in the beginning of February 2023 and the design is expected to be completed in summer 2023. Production of the key structures will begin in 2024 with the expectation to be finalized in same late 2024. The installation on the site is scheduled to be starting in spring 2024 and Nordec’s part of the project with key focus to frames is expected to be completed in 2025.
"It is an honor to be involved in such demanding and diverse projects that will become the landmarks of the future," says Peter Marins, Project Manager from Multi-Storey Business Unit of Nordec at the site.
