NIB finances the first regional command centre and a green office in Sweden
NIB and the Swedish real estate company Intea Fastigheter AB (publ) have signed a 14-year loan agreement for new green buildings that will centralise public service operations.
The SEK 410 million (approx. EUR 36.3 million) loan will finance the construction of Sweden’s first regional command centre in Örebro and a new wooden building in Östersund. Both buildings are expected to receive BREEAM Excellent certification and are eligible for financing from the proceeds of NIB Environmental Bonds.
The 12,300-square-meter building in Örebro will be leased to the Swedish Police and will house several authorities such as the rescue service and SOS Alarm. Centralising the operations under one roof will allow for better coordination of day-to-day activities and major events, increasing the emergency preparedness.
The 6,750-square-meter building in the Östersund Campus area will be mainly occupied by the Swedish Tax Agency, concentrating its activities from several locations. By relocating to a centralised office close to other government agencies, the tax authority will benefit from better synergies, as well as time and cost savings.
“The projects fulfil our mandate for both productivity and environmental benefits. The new constructions not only provide greener workplaces for the Swedish authorities, but also accommodate more efficient and better-quality public services,” says André Küüsvek, NIB President and CEO.
Both buildings are expected to be completed by the end of this year.
“Intea is finalising different projects focusing on sustainability and efficiency in 2023 and 2024. We appreciate the collaboration with NIB and look forward to similar opportunities in the future,” says Emil Jansbo, CFO at Intea.
Established in 2015, Intea Fastigheter AB is a Swedish real estate company focusing on long-term, active ownership of social infrastructure. The company’s portfolio consists of buildings and projects with public tenants representing the administration of justice, higher education and healthcare.
