COWI entrusted to help develop knowledge hub in Stockholm
Akademiska Hus, the property developer of the Albano Campus premises in Stockholm, has commissioned COWI to take on a leading role within a range of disciplines including geo-technology in the planning of the buildings, streets and conduits.
A total of 150,000 m2 of university and higher education premises will be built in Albano, which includes 50,000 m2 for student and researcher accommodation.
The objective is to create an attractive educational and research environment that will form a hub that connects KTH Royal Institute of Technology and Stockholm University. The buildings will be integrated into the surrounding park landscape, with green roofs and large green terraces.
“It’s great to be involved in developing the Albano campus, transforming the area from the rundown industrial area it is today into a vibrant educational environment with many green spaces,” says Johan Ström, project manager at COWI.
