15 apartments to be built in old municipal building

Contractor bought the building several years ago. It had been partially renovated by a previous owner, but not in accordance with Swedish regulations and without a building permit. Subsequently, a new detailed plan was drawn up to allow the house to be converted into residential units; it had previously been intended for 'general purposes'.

The building used to house a youth recreation center, and here you can see the remains of it. Kurt Nyström gave a tour during a visit in 2021.

Then the construction crisis hit and the project was put on hold. Contractor is not renovating the apartment building to own it, but intends to sell it to a real estate company. Ideally, they would like to complete the sale before starting the renovation, but they have now decided to proceed. They recently applied for a building permit.

– We need to keep our carpenters busy, so we're starting the project. A lot can happen before we finish, says an optimistic Kurt Nyström, CEO of Contractor Bygg.

The plan is to start construction in the summer, and the renovation will take about six months. Contractor will employ 2-5 carpenters, and subcontractors will be brought in for electrical and plumbing wor

On the building plans, it can be seen that balconies will be added.

Contractor has another potential project in Byske, consisting of 46 apartments on Kammargatan.

– We continue to try to sell that project. We are negotiating, but nothing is finalized, says Nyström.
