Peab builds extension of Hudiksvall Hospital

Peab has been commissioned to build a new tech building, new culverts and an energy storage room at Hudiksvall Hospital. The customer is Region Gävleborg and the contract is worth SEK 695 million.

Building for the Future is Region Gävleborg’s collective name for some of the largest property investments in hospitals in Gävle and Hudiksvall ever. Within this framework Peab has been commissioned to, among other things, build a new building for supplying technology as well as new culverts at Hudiksvall Hospital.

“We’re very pleased to have been entrusted with developing Hudiksvall Hospital together with Region Gävleborg. This is a complex project that requires a great deal of coordination. Peab’s considerable experience in major hospital projects, such as the University Hospital of Umeå, is very valuable here. We look forward to contributing to an even better hospital for the residents of Hudiksvall,” says Fredrik Timan, Region Manager Peab.

When the new tech building is up and running well the current tech buildings will be torn down to make room for a new healthcare building. The project is expected to take four years to complete.

“The new tech building and culvert system at Hudiksvall Hospital is Region Gävleborg’s largest property investment within the framework of Building for the Future up to this point and the basis for all future construction on hospital grounds. Now we can finally begin building and I look forward to continued good collaboration with Peab and Hälsingebygg in the coming years,” says Magnus Busk, Project Manager for Building for the Future in Region Gävleborg.

The project is a turnkey contract in partnering and will be order registered in the second quarter 2022.
