Sweco to plan and design modernisation of Stockholm Central Station

14th August 2017 – The Swedish Transport Administration has commissioned Sweco to plan and design the modernisation of the station environment and railway network at Stockholm Central Station. The project covers the entire station, from tracks to platforms. The objective is to prepare Stockholm Central Station for the future.

Stockholm Central Station, spanning the area from Tegelbacken to Karlberg, is the busiest railway station in Sweden, with around 1,000 daily arrivals and departures. The station’s railway network and station environment must be modernised to meet future needs and improve accessibility for travellers. This includes everything from switchgears and new waiting bays and turntables for the trains to renovated and accessibility-adapted platforms.

Due to the station’s size, location and significance for Sweden’s infrastructure, the project will be one of the most complex in the history of Swedish railways. Sweco’s consultants will work in all of the project’s technical areas.

”We are pleased to be working closely with the Swedish Transport Administration to create the railway hub of the future for travellers and freight. With this project, we are providing our expertise, experience and commitment within a range of disciplines – from railways, environment and architecture to design, technical building services and project management,” says Åsa Bergman, President of Sweco Sweden.

The project will be completed in stages to ensure that the station operates efficiently during the entire project period. Sweco is involved from project start through final construction, and will prepare systems documentation, conduct analyses including configuration programs, and produce tender documents for contractors. Sweco will also provide support to the Swedish Transport Administration as the real estate company Jernhusen is planning for an overbuild of the railway tracks.

Work on the project will begin immediately and continues through 2022. Sweco estimates the project’s total order value to exceed SEK 300 million. In Stockholm, Sweco is already working with projects closely related to Stockholm Central, such as project Getingmidjan and the recently opened Stockholm City Line.

Sven-Harry’s Art Museum Stockholm – 10 Aug 2012
The vertical museum is a city type. In urban situations are collections connected by stairs, elevators and escalators. It is an effect of density, but also a way to create sequences in the exhibition with the natural boundaries of the building. The top and the ground floor do have a significant importance in every building; exhibitions emphasises these dynamics of access and secrecy. The section thru Sven-Harry’s with commercial activities on the ground floor, the collection in the penthouse and the art hall in the core of building follow this typology
