The construction of Intea’s new wooden building on the Campus area in Östersund has begun. The building is expected to be ready for occupancy in the third quarter of 2023, and will be environmentally certified pursuant to BREEAM Excellent.  

The new building will be constructed in the eastern part of the Campus area, next to the Swedish Enforcement Authority building. It will have a lettable area of approximately 6,750 sqm, with open and flexible premises allowing for future adaptation. Intea and the Swedish Tax Agency have entered into a 6-year lease agreement for 4,600 sqm of space in the building. Leasing for the remaining space is currently being arranged.

The project has ambitious sustainability objectives, such as a lower climate footprint than the reference building and caring for the local environment. It has a circular design, which means the building is designed adaptively to meet future changes and can be dismantled for reuse and recycling if necessary. Early in the process, the material choices and technical solutions were assessed with regard to a lifecycle cost and lifecycle analysis perspective. The project is characterised by climate-smart solutions such as wood as a fundamental material, climate-improved concrete in the foundations, partial reuse of fixed furnishings, solar panels on the roof and recycling systems. In addition, a lot of work has been done on the surrounding environment to increase biodiversity, such as planting meadow grasses, installing bird boxes and creating open solutions for stormwater drainage and treatment. Stringent energy requirements have been defined for the construction process and local materials and suppliers have been chosen to a large extent. Overall, the building’s CO2footprint will be almost half that of the reference building.

“It is great that we are developing the Campus area and have now begun construction in this project. It will be really interesting to follow the rational assembly that a wooden framework entails. We look forward to welcoming the Swedish Tax Agency to modern premises adapted to specific business needs in autumn 2023,” says Jerker Häggström, Managing Director of Intea Östersund.
