Serneke to construct new court building in Vänersborg


Serneke and Hemsö Fastigheter AB have signed a turnkey contract regarding new premises for the Vänersborg District Court. The project is being conducted in partnership and includes the dismantling of existing buildings, as well as the new construction of approximately 6,850 m2 of premises. The order is valued at approximately SEK 285 million.

Hemsö Fastigheter AB and Serneke will collaborate to construct a new court building in central Vänersborg. The building will house some 130 workplaces, 11 courtrooms (two of which will offer increased security), a security screening area with a connecting reception area, public areas, offices for court personnel, as well as rooms and arrival facilities for detainees.


“We are highly satisfied with the product developed alongside Serneke and Fojab. The District Court building will be functional, durable and solid. I am looking forward very much to the constellation’s continued collaboration,” says Hanna Tengberg, Project Developer at Hemsö.


The roughly 6,850 m2 of space will house both the Vänersborg District Court, as well as the Land and Environmental Court. The building is also being prepared for future expansion, with flows and security zones being pre-assured to safeguard the suitability of the premises for many years to come.


“We are both pleased and proud to have been assigned, alongside Hemsö, the construction of the new signature building that will house the Vänersborg District Court. We are very familiar with the complexity of such a building and have established a clear implementation plan and look forward to starting work on shaping a solid and functional community building that will be sustainable over the long-term,” says Christoffer Sundin, Construction Manager at Serneke.


The planning of the new court building will begin immediately, with construction scheduled to commence in the autumn of 2023. The building is planned for completion in the summer of 2026. The project is conditional on the approval of the Swedish government, which is awaited during the autumn. The order value of SEK 285 million will be included in the order bookings for the fourth quarter of 2022.
