Veidekke: To renovate and remodel school in Vallentuna, Sweden

Veidekke's Swedish subsidiary Arcona has been commissioned by Vallentuna municipality to renovate and remodel Vallentuna upper secondary school, which in future will house both the school and municipality offices. The collaborative design and build contract is worth approx. SEK 190 million, of which the design phase has already been completed and amounts to approx. SEK 15 million.

The approx. 9,000 m2 school building will be renovated and converted into modern premises suitable for students as well as for municipality employees. The project also comprises a car park for employees and a new rooftop building to house the fan room. Completion of the project is expected in autumn 2024.

The idea of moving the municipality offices to the upper secondary school came as the municipality, while looking for new premises, was seeing that the current student body of 400 were unable to fully utilise a school building built for 650 students. The municipality hopes that the co-location will result in more efficient use of the property.

“We are very happy to be able to sign the contract with Arcona to bring this whole exciting project to fruition,” says Magnus Sjögren, project manager at Vallentuna municipality.

Arcona announced the contract for the design phase of the conversion in June 2022, and has now been entrusted with the actual production phase. Construction start is just around the corner, and planning and demolition work is already underway. Measures have been taken to ensure that the school can continue normal operations during the project period.

“We are excited that Vallentuna municipality has entrusted us with phase 2 of this collaborative project, which has many challenges and is not an easy one. We are ready for the task and look forward to starting production now, says Jörgen Böhlin, project manager at Arcona.
