– For Science Village Scandinavia it means a lot that we started with the first building, says Ulrika Lindmark CEO of Science Village. We have a lot of pressure on us to provide services in the form of accommodation and restaurants, when so many people now have their offices in the local area, both on the MAX IV facility and the ESS site. We also look forward to being able to offer office workstations and meeting rooms for those who want to be near the research facilities.
The building will be constructed on five levels and include approximately 7000 m2. SPACE will be built in wood and is scheduled for completion in late 2018th.
