Martinsons has secured its single largest order ever. It concerns the delivery and assembly of the CLT- and glulam framework for the Skellefteå Culture Centre in Sweden. The order is worth around 10 million Euro.
For Martinsons’ part, the order follows on from projects such as IFU Arena in Uppsala and Trikåfabriken in Hammarby Sjöstad. IFU Arena was appointed Arena of the Year 2018 by financial newspaper Dagens Industri’s Sport & Business section and superstructure Trikåfabriken covering nearly 9,000 square meter of office space.
The Skellefteå Culture Centre building will be approximately 80 meters high comprising 20 floors. For Martinsons part, the volumes in the order include around 10,000 cubic meter of cross-laminated timber and 2,200 cubic meters of glulam.
Production starts at the Martinsons factory in Bygdsiljum outside Skellefteå in April. Construction starts in June and is expected to last for nearly eighteen months.
The construction components delivered by Martinsons will bind nearly 9,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide throughout their lifetime. This corresponds to return flights Stockholm to New York for over 13,000 people. Emissions throughout the production chain will correspond to 900 flights.
