Peab has been commissioned to renovate Rimnersvallen Stadium to meet standards for parasport, Swedish Championships in track and field and Superettan in soccer. The stadium will also be completely accessibility adapted for athletes and the public. The customer is Uddevalla Municipality and the contract is worth SEK 211 million.
During the spring Peab has worked on planning the project and preparatory groundwork. The project is now going into production which entails building new stands for around four thousand spectators and four lighting towers and taking measures to handle settlement problems. When Rimnersvallen Stadium is ready in the fall of 2023 Uddevalla will have a new accessibility adapted stadium that will meet standard requirements for parasports and other sports.
“As community builders we’re really pleased to be part of renovating Rimnersvallen Stadium. This is a project that will mean a great deal to a lot of people as well as Uddevalla as a city. Many of us will go to sports events at Rimnersvallen Stadium and we’re very proud that Peab is contributing to Uddevalla’s upgraded stadium,” says Stellan Haraldson, Region Manager Peab.
“Rimnersvallen Stadium is an important sports and health facility for Uddevalla and its residents. It’s also a key part of Uddevalla and its history which is why we’re both pleased and proud to be modernizing and developing “Vallen” for the future together with Peab,” says Kenneth Funeskog, Head of the Community Building Department at Uddevalla Municipality.
The project is a turnkey contract in partnering and construction will begin immediately. It is expected to be completed in the fall of 2023.
The project will be order registered in the second quarter 2022.
