Skanska built the Clarion Hotel Sign which, with its 558 double rooms and an area of 29,000 square meters, is the largest hotel in Stockholm.
Production took place in an extremely limited space and traffic and businesses surrounding the construction site needed to work as normally as possible.
Parallel to the construction of the Clarion Hotel Sign, several other office and housing projects were underway in the area, which resulted in a number of extraordinary logistical challenges and work-environment problems to overcome.
Cranes crossed each other’s paths, transportation vehicles drove in and out across each other’s areas and a bicycle lane was located immediately adjacent to the site. In addition, we needed to take into account the railway traffic and high voltage lines when we unloaded the structural elements that “fluttered in the wind.”
Skanska served as the general contractor for the project, which meant that the company was responsible for all aspects of the project – planning, materials, construction and subcontractors. It also meant that we had the opportunity to influence and present solutions that were beneficial for the timeframe, budget, work environment and environment.
“An example is the solution we identified together with Green Cargo and the Swedish Rail Administration which allowed us to make use of the location of the construction site next to the railroad yard. The prefabricated structural elements were transported by rail from Slovakia instead of by truck, which meant that we could actually lift them directly from the train cars straight into the building – a brilliant solution for logistics and the environment,” says Magnus Hellsten, Skanska’s Project Engineer for the Clarion Hotel Sign.
The Clarion Hotel Sign opened in February 2008, two years after breaking ground. The 11-story building, designed by renowned architected Gert Wingårdh, is made up of four interconnected buildings with two inner courtyards.
The hotel has a Scandinavian main theme for its architecture, design and cuisine, and put Stockholm on the map in the conference world.
The area surrounding Norra Bantorget has undergone a radical transformation into a vibrant and attractive urban district; including housing, offices, hotels, retail stores, cafés and green areas.

The Clarion Hotel Sign is part of the major refurbishment of the area called Västra City. The project aims to breathe life into the area between the Klara sjö channel and the buildings in Norrmalm.
In 1999, Skanska took the first initiative to develop the area around Norra Bantorget and the following year won the assignment from the City of Stockholm of conducting a feasibility study of the planning area. Today, Norra Bantorget is a vibrant part of Stockholm and has become one of Stockholm’s most attractive areas for housing and business.
New housing, retail stores, offices, restaurants and more green areas link Norra Bantorget with St Eriksplan. A large popular open-air café is located on the gravel square at Norra Latin. Skanska has built the Flat Iron Building as well as a number of housing developments in the area and then, of course, we have built Stockholm’s largest hotel, Clarion Hotel Sign. The much noted hotel created 160 full-time jobs.
The decision to use rail instead of traditional trucks to transport the VST framing system from Slovakia was an excellent solution that reduced carbon emissions corresponding to driving by truck 30 times around the world. Transportation by rail also led to savings of more than 10 percent in freight costs.
In 2006, the Clarion Hotel Sign project was nominated for Skanska Sweden’s environmental award.
Skanska served as the general contractor for the Clarion Hotel Sign. The client, Arthur Buchardt, is one of the best-known entrepreneurs in the property and hotel industry in Norway.
When the City of Stockholm first floated the idea of developing the area next to the railroad yard just north of the Central Station, Arthur Buchardt saw an opportunity and proposed a large-scale hotel as a background for Norra Bantorget square.
Architect Gert Wingårdh’s assignment was to design a building that represented the Stockholm of today and tomorrow. The result was a building featuring two jutting points that cut the air to the south and two very different sides. The side facing the railroad yard was completely sealed and the other facing Norra Bantorget square is an open, sloping façade that reflects the area’s growing verdant expanse.
The proximity to the railroad yard and the challenges associated with a construction site in a city environment meant that much time was spent on planning and risk management.
A decision made at an early stage was the choice of framework. In a bid to reduce the total cost and shorten the construction time, a framework comprising mixed assembly technology was chosen.
The partnership with Green Cargo and the Rail Administration allowed for the framing system to be transported from Slovakia by rail instead of more traditionally by truck. As a result, Skanska reduced carbon emissions corresponding to driving by truck 30 times around the world, and financial savings of about 10 percent on freight costs. Accordingly, the railroad yard went from being a problem to an asset.
From an environmental perspective, the project required a low-input of resources and we achieved a more efficient construction process through improved predictability and storage options at the construction site.
Since the project was located in the city center, with intense traffic and many people moving about, it was decided early on to engage logistical coordinators. Their task was to receive deliveries and ensure that traffic flowed well. An important task was also to answer questions from passersby and make sure that there was no trespassing onto the site.
Adjacent streets and roads were kept open throughout the entire construction period and pedestrians and traffic could pass by safely without any problems.
