a courtyard and will comprise about 130 apartments and garaging. The other two

high demand for new housing in Uppsala. We are pleased to be able to meet these
needs by providing energy-efficient housing,” says Svante Hagman, Head of NCC

basis, (http://www.ncc.se/en/products-and-services/partnering/) which is a
cooperative format whereby the key project participants jointly resolve issues
arising in an assignment by means of an open dialog focusing on the best
interests of the project.
Construction starts in August 2014. The student apartments are expected to be
ready for occupancy at the start of the spring term 2016 and the larger building
will be ready in stages from August 2016 to May 2017.
