Peab extends Sörbyn Prison south of Umeå

Peab has been commissioned to extend the Sörbyn Prison south of Umeå. The customer is Specialfastigheter Sverige AB and the contract is worth SEK 364 million.

Sörbyn Prison has 40 cells and thirteen emergency cells in security class 3. The prison is located 4.5 Swedish miles south of Umeå. Peab has been commissioned to extend the prison with 96 cells.

“We’re pleased to have been entrusted with extending Sörbyn Prison together with Specialfastigheter. Building prisons is complex and puts high demands on us as contractors and we’re proud to contribute with our expertise in this project,” says Susanne Hallberg, Region Manager Peab.

“The Prison and Probation Service is currently working intensively to meet the need for more prison space. We’re increasing space in different ways to handle the shortage of space and Sörbyn is one of many places we’re doing this. The fact that we can soon start work on the extension of Sörbyn is very positive,” says Johan Modin, Region Manager at The Prison and Probation Service.

The project is a contract in partnering and construction will start during the summer of 2022.

The project will be order registered in the second quarter 2022.
