New Karolinska hospital
ÅF as lead player in the New Karolinska Solna project
To meet the health care demands of an aging population, a brand new university hospital is being built in the Swedish capital, Stockholm.
ÅF is working alongside the construction company Skanska, in the New Karolinska Solna project, a new state of the art facility for the Karolinska University Hospital with minimal environmental impact and with a focus on increased patient safety.
ÅF is in charge of electrical energy and HVAC; that is, heating, ventilation and air conditioning solutions. The assignment incorporates general design, production of program documents, detailed design, operations and maintenance instructions and cost calculations.
All indoor and exterior lighting has also been designed by ÅF, with the health and well-being of patients and staff in mind.
The new hospital is expected to be completed by 2017.
