On Friday 11 September production of the HSB Living Lab began at Swedish Modules’ production facility in Emtunga. Partners, the press and HSB’s management were on site to formally launch the project and observe in person when the first 13.5 m-long module was rolled into the production hall.
“This project is an important milestone for both HSB and Swedish Modules and one of the largest projects we have ever delivered to the property market,” says Mats Stoltz, CEO of Swedish Modules.
The building consists of a total of 44 modules and weighs 214 tonnes. Swedish Modules is responsible for design and production of the building above the ground. In mid-November the first modules will roll out of the factory in Emtunga to be shipped in columns to the construction site on the Johanneberg campus at Chalmers in Gothenburg.
