The two Instalco companies Ohmegi and VVS-metoder have been entrusted to participate in the construction of the new office building Grow in Solna strand outside Stockholm. The Swedish Public Employment Service will be the largest tenant as it moves its head office with 1,200 employees from the Stockholm city centre.
The heating and plumbing installations of VVS-Metoder and electrical works of Ohmegi will be carried out through a construction contract from Forsen Projekt with Humlegården Fastigheter as the customer. The total order value for VVS-Metoder and Ohmegi amounts to approximately SEK 31 million.
The eight-level (plus two basement levels) office building Grow comprises 36,500 square meters with a restaurant in the ground floor. The building will be certified according to the Miljöbyggnad Gold standard by the Sweden Green Building Council and is expected to be completed in 2019.
As Solna strand is dominated by large buildings, the architects behind Grow decided to decrease the scale, and the building in question consists of two bodies with overhanging parts in various levels.
“We are happy to continue our cooperation with Forsen Projekt and Humlegården Fastigheter. Previously, we have delivered heating and plumbing installations to Swedbank’s head office in the same area”, says Daniel Fili, CEO of VVS-metoder.
“Ohmegi and VVS-metoder have good experience from working together in joint projects with our respective expertise. We look forward to further develop our collaboration through the Grow assignment”, says Fredrik Ifwer at Ohmegi.
