Peab has been commissioned to build offices and examination halls at Umeå University. The customer is Akademiska Hus and the contract is worth SEK 280 million. The 9,500 square meters building will be five stories high. The facade will be built with Stofix, which is a system where bricks are hung up on mounting panels. The project will be built and certified according to Miljöbyggnad Gold. The material will be chosen carefully for its environmental and sustainable qualities. For the most part ECO-Betong will be used, which compared to traditional concrete can reduce the concrete’s carbon emissions by up to 50 percent.The project is a traditional contract. Construction will begin in December 2022 and Peab will turn over the building in the first quarter 2025. Landscaping depends on the weather and is expected to be completed by September 2025.
