Skanska has, together with Cura-gruppen, signed an agreement with Sykehuset Vestfold HF for the expansion of the hospital in Vestfold, Norway. The contract is worth NOK 1.7 billion.

The project includes a new, 12,000-square-meter psychiatry building and a 33,000-square-meter building for somatic care. The project also includes alignment of the infrastructure, energy facilities and demolition of existing hospital buildings.

The contract is based on the IPD model (Integrated Project Delivery), where the parties will cooperate in the implementation phase with common incentives, also including subcontractors. For the project, Skanska has gathered expertise from Norway, Sweden, UK, and USA.

Construction work has begun. The Psychiatry building will be completed in March 2019 and the building for somatic care during the first quarter 2021.
