MT Højgaard has won a tender from the North Denmark Region to build a 155,000 square meter shell structure for the New University Hospital in Aalborg, Denmark. The contract is worth about DKK 560 million.
MT Højgaard submitted the most advantageous bid for the contract to build a new 155,000 square meter shell structure for the New University Hospital Aalborg. The North Denmark Region is therefore expected to award the contract that includes earth works, drainage and concrete works to MT Højgaard. The building will feature a two storey-basement, a three-storey main building and two four- and five-storey ward towers.
MT Højgaard is already constructing a large part of the shell structure for the New University Hospital in Aarhus where the company applies digital construction methods such as BIM (Building Information Modelling) to optimise construction processes, and these tools will also be applied for the project in Aalborg.
- Securing a good construction workflow and ensuring proper health and safety standards in a project as extensive as the New University Hospital Aalborg calls for focused control of logistics and ongoing progress. Using our digital tools, we have already optimised the time schedule for this project, and I expect we will identify additional opportunities for optimisation when we review the plans with the client, so we can deliver the building on time and at the agreed price, said MT Højgaard vice president Torben Bloch Nielsen.
A few weeks ago, MT Højgaard was also awarded a contract to construct a new hospital building for Esbjerg Hospital.
- We have several large hospital projects in our current order book. These are large and relatively complex assignments that are a good match for our construction methods and specific skills and competencies, said Mr Bloch Nielsen.
Construction of the shell structure for the New University Hospital Aalborg is scheduled to take three and a half years and is expected to commence after the summer holidays. The contract is worth DKK 560 million and is expected to be signed in June on expiry of the standstill period.
The project is expected to have a positive effect on MT Højgaard's consolidated revenue and earnings during the term of the project, but it will not affect the company's current financial guidance.
