The superstore ICA Maxi, a Fabege customer in Solna Business Park, has saved SEK 300,000 annually in reduced electricity consumption thanks to its cooperation with Fabege and the Municipality of Solna. For its efforts, ICA Maxi was awarded the municipality’s Environmental Award for 2010.

Fabege develops attractive areas

“Our business concept is based on urban development – developing entire areas and city districts rather than single properties. That’s how we create areas that are attractive long term,” says Urban Sjölund, Director of Properties at Fabege.

New library with a focus on children and the environment

The new library that will open in Hammarby Sjöstad next February will be three times as large, and have a greater focus on children. The refurbishment project is fully aligned with Fabege’s ambition of providing the district with high-quality services.

No request is impossible...

Would you like to modify the floor plan, customize certain areas, or have a brand new property? No request is impossible. Fabege creates and changes based on the customer's wishes.

Arenastaden is customised for Olympus and Egmont

Olympus wanted more open-planning and premises that would satisfy increasingly stringent hygiene requirements. Egmont companies Egmont Tidskrifter and Nordisk Film needed larger premises and custom-built areas. Fabege found solutions that met these customers’ requirements, and both Olympus and Egmont could soon move into customised premises in Arenastaden.

Arenastaden growing

Construction is under way! Arenastaden is no longer simply a drawing on paper. The first sections of the stands at Friends Arena are now 60 metres tall. Although construction is still in Stage 1, a new city skyline is already taking shape.

New website

Feel free to peruse Fabege’s new website. The entire site has been given a major facelift and several new functions are now available, including a section designed exclusively for our tenants.

Comfort generating operation

Comfort. Feel how the word rolls off your tongue. Comfort, an element that makes life easier and adds quality to life. Perhaps in the form of a thick white terry towel at a spa or the excellent accessories that turn your car into a dream.

ICA, a dynamic workplace

Pulsating with life in a continuously functional and playful process of change. ICA Sweden AB’s head office in the Solna Business Park is a dynamic phenomenon that clearly reflects the atmosphere in this expansive area.

Fabege moves in

Fabege has become one of the first companies to move into an ultramodern property in Arenastaden. Although Fabege has had an office in the area for four years, the company is now moving into a fully renovated office equipped with new technology and with an environmental profile – a move that is completely in line with the vision for Solna’s growing city district.

Close customer relations

Responsiveness, rapid feedback and high service level. According to a customer survey performed in 2009, these were some of the areas in which Fabege’s customers felt the company had the potential to improve.


Fabege reduces its CO2 emissions

Fabege left no stone unturned in its efforts to streamline its energy consumption, identify environment-friendly solutions and reduce its CO2 emissions.

Energy conservation

Energy conservation requires the combined efforts of all. Whether you’re a landlord or a tenant, there are simple measures available that help us avoid wasting natural resources. These range from how you build and enhance energy efficiency to how you manage and utilise a property.

Arenastaden, a new, throbbing city district in Solna

Building a new city district is an exciting challenge. Especially so when the pulsating new district will feature offices, housing, an extensive shopping centre, plus the Swedbank Arena, Sweden’s new national arena, and Vattenfall's new headquarters.

Carnegie finds a home

One of Sweden’s oldest brands recently took up residence in one of Stockholm’s most desirable city properties. In cooperation with Fabege, Carnegie has created a customised office space in the city’s Bocken block – much to the delight of everyone involved.

ACNE in Pan

ACNE, in collaboration with Fabege has restored honour to an old treasure. “The Bank Palace” in Stockholm’s Old Town now stands proudly following meticulous cleaning and an extension.

An affair of the heart

Dansskolan (the Dance Academy with a truly big “D”) is currently housed in one of Fabege’s purpose-built premises in the stylish Östermalm district of Stockholm. Anneli Alhanko ­– Royal Swedish Court dancer, prima ballerina, and Artistic Director of Base 23-Stockholm Dance Academy ­– awards Fabege a “distinction” in her assessment of their cooperation together.
