Serneke to remodel Falkenberg upper-secondary school


Serneke Construction has secured a new project in collaboration with the Municipality of Falkenberg, encompassing the renovation and extension of the existing properties on the campus of the Falkenberg upper-secondary school. This new construction contract is valued at approximately SEK 160 million.

Alongside the Municipality of Falkenberg, Serneke has elaborated a phase 1 planning project and has now elected to progress to phase 2, production. The new contract includes the total renovation and extension of the existing Buildings 3 and 5 of the upper-secondary school. The present upper-secondary school is a former industrial building from the late 19th century that is now to be completely remodeled, retaining only the original carcass.

Serneke has previously secured another contract to construct Argus, Falkenberg’s new science and culture center, which is located adjacent to Building 3.

“The project is part of the Municipality of Falkenberg’s largest investment to date and, at Serneke Construction, we are extremely proud to be part of this. We are pleased to have been entrusted with the renovation and extension of Building 3 and the renovation of Building 5,” says Karl Wetterlund, Construction Manager at Serneke Construction.

“The remodeling of the upper-secondary school will provide larger and more modern teaching environments. We will also be connecting the upper-secondary school to Argus, where school’s libraries and administration will be located. In this way, it will be easy for students and teachers to move between the buildings and benefit from everything that Argus has to offer,” says Irene Wigroth, Head of the Construction and Planning Unit at the Municipality of Falkenberg.

Work will commence in early October this year and is scheduled for completion by the end of 2020.

The order value of approximately SEK 160 million is included in order bookings for the third quarter of 2019.
