At Lomma Harbor, Skanska is transforming an old industrial site by the sea into one of southern Sweden’s most attractive residential environments. Waterfront sites are much in demand in the expansive Östersund region – the location by the sea and the position halfway between Malmö and Lund is idyllic.
In 2009, the first resident moved into the Å district. The center featuring a library and other services is situated only a few hundred meters away, at the same time as the extremely picturesque location by the river is quiet and protected from harsh seaward winds. The last of the residences are expected to be ready for tenants to move in at the end of December 2013. Skanska is building a total of 113 apartments and 54 single-family homes.
Skanska’s link to the old industrial site stretches far back. In the past, the Group used it as a machinery depot and, before that, a brickworks stood on the site.
For those who grew up in Lomma, it has been a major change. The unsightly industrial buildings are now being replaced by attractive residential buildings with brick facing in bright shades of red, blue, copper or green.
The transformation of the old industrial site started in 2007 with comprehensive remediation work. We constructed roads and bridges, laid water and wastewater pipes and raised the ground level to protect the buildings against high tides.
The robust buildings are built of concrete and other heavy materials and we have introduced energy-efficient solutions that are kind on the environment and reduce energy costs for the residents.
“The apartments and houses are extremely beautiful, which I think was a particular source of pride for many who worked on the project. It’s fun to work with something that others know about,” according to Bo Hansson, Project Manager for Lomma Harbor.

The conversion of a worthless industrial site into an attractive waterfront residential area represents a boost for the entire area.
At the same time as undertaking an urban regeneration project, we have endeavored to conserve historical sites and fishing operations together with the municipality and other contractors. For example, the fish-smoking house is still there and each morning the fishermen go out to sea and return with the catch of the day to the fish shop and the area’s restaurants.
“The Å district in Lomma Harbor features different types of buildings – there is a variation in the area that also creates a cohesive impression. This variation is positive for us working in the area, since it is exciting and provides challenges. At the same time, the variation in the finished result is something to be proud of,” comments Bo Hansson, Project Manager.
The earthworks were certified in accordance with the new UK environmental rating system CEEQUAL, which was launched in 2011 and is applied to roads and civil engineering projects. With the certification of the Å district in Lomma harbor, Skanska became the first international company to eco-certify a road and civil engineering project.
The project is a Green Workplace, which is Skanska’s own ecolabeling system involving, for example, more efficient energy consumption, recycling of construction material at the worksite, sorting at source and the use of eco-friendly material.
All products are checked against Skanska’s chemicals database, helping to ensure that we always use eco-friendly alternatives where possible.
Aside from the ability of the concrete walls to withstand the forces of nature, they also provide a constant and comfortable indoor climate.
The houses under construction in Lomma Harbor consume small amounts of energy, which is good for the environment and results in lower energy costs for the residents. The buildings have extra insulation, are airtight and feature energy-efficient windows. Locally produced district heating is used. Heat is recovered by using outgoing exhaust air to heat the incoming fresh air.
It should be easy for the resident of the Å district to live in an environmentally friendly manner. We have thought of everything from sorting at source in closely located eco-centers to energy-saving appliances.
Work started on Lomma Harbor in 2007 and the final phase is scheduled for completion in December 2013.
The transformation of the Å district is being conducted in close cooperation with Lomma Municipality. Skanska is involved in several design construct contracts and is responsible for project management, financing, planning, construction and sale of residential properties.
“I grew up in Lomma and remember what it looked like when cycled down to the beach for a swim. We had to walk between one ugly shed after the other to get there. The transformation that is now taking place is fantastic,” explains Bo Hansson, Project Manager.
Work on the old industrial site began with comprehensive remediation work. This was followed by infrastructure work: we built roads and bridges and installed water and sanitation facilities. Careful planning in consultation with the municipality was necessary.
Because the buildings are situated by a river that runs into the sea, we must protect ourselves against the risk of flooding. When doing the foundation work, we raised the ground level to protect the buildings against high tides.
We designed the buildings based on their close proximity to the coast and have carefully chosen the material. They are constructed exclusively of concrete and other heavy materials. The facades must be able to withstand coastal winds and other conditions.
Safety is incredibly important in all Skanska projects. In Lomma Harbor, we have placed extra emphasis on the safety of third parties given that residents have already moved into the area. We have carefully planned the order in which the housing units should be produced with a keen eye on safety. Residents must also be able to get to where they live. Cordoned-off areas, clear signage and information play a key role in the safety work.
Lars Liljedahl, Project Manager, explains that the new residents are positive toward the methods used to construct the buildings in the form of a focus on sustainability and energy efficiency, the design of living spaces and their contact with Skanska. He remembers a particular event with pride:
“A Nordic Skanska meeting was attended by a family that had moved into one of the townhouses. They came up on stage and talked openly about their experience. The family had a very positive view of the actual house and the area, as well as their contact with Skanska people. I think it put a smile on the face of everybody who worked on the project.”
