To build new senior-level and upper secondary school in Västerås
AF Gruppen’s subsidiary HMB Construction has been commissioned to build a new senior-level and upper secondary school in Västerås. The value of the contract is approximately SEK 230 million excluding VAT.
This is a design and build contract on behalf of client Hemsö.
The new Rytterborg School will have an approximate area of 7,500 m2 across four storeys, accommodating around 860 pupils in senior-level, upper secondary and vocational educations. The school is to be built at Kristiansborgsallén and its closest neighbours will be Mälardalen University and the Kristiansborg swimming facility.
“We are delighted to be given the opportunity to build new, functional school premises in an area of Västerås that is growing and badly needs more educational facilities,” says Bård Frydenlund, AF Gruppen’s EVP for Sweden.
The design of the new school building draws on the idea of a prism, with continuous windows running around all six facades. The ground floor will be clad in recycled brick, while the other storeys will be clad in upright wooden ribs. There will be a commercial kitchen incorporated into the ground floor, while there will be a roof terrace added to the top of the building.
Work on construction will begin immediately and the school is scheduled to be completed by the 2024 autumn term.
