Ratos company SSEA wins prestigious contract to build new town hall in Ängelholm, Sweden
The winners of the construction and architecture competition “Ängelholm’s new town hall” have now been presented. The Ratos-owned construction company SSEA (a part of SSEA Group) has been selected, together with the architect firm Liljewall, to design and construct the new town hall. The town hall is expected to be a spectacular meeting place.
The project was announced as an architecture and construction competition at year-end 2022. The turnkey partnering project will commence immediately with project planning. The town hall is expected to be complete in 2026/2027
“Winning such a prestigious contract is an indication of the strength of Ratos’s infrastructure and construction operations. With its partnering model and expertise, SSEA is a leader in the industry, even in a tougher macroeconomic climate. We are delighted to have secured yet another high-profile sustainable construction project in our portfolio as sustainable buildings are profitable for everyone involved,” says Christian Johansson Gebauer, Chairman of the Board of SSEA Group and President, Business Area Construction & Services, Ratos.
