The brand-new container and ro-ro harbour has won the Infrastructure category as well as has been announced the overall winner.
The jury of the 2021 competition justified the prizes that went to Stockholm Norvik by underlying in a statement that, "The overall winner of Årets Bygge [Construction of the Year] 2021 is not a single construction - but several complex constructions in one. Roads, bridges and buildings have been connected together with a railway line, tunnel and a world class cargo terminal. The budget and time planning was impeccable, the collaboration of the 40 different contractors was impressive and the injury statistics were unbelievably exemplary. The ship came in! What did it bring? Winner of the Årets Bygge 2021 construction prize: Stockholm Norvik Port. Many congratulations!"
Stockholm Norvik spans over 44 ha and comprises, apart from the two cargo handling areas, a 4.0 km-long railway, a rail yard, new roads, several bridges, a tunnel through the hillside, six major buildings, the port's own water reservoir, and electrical power installations with the capacity of a small city.
The Årets Bygge is an award handed by the Swedish construction sector magazine Byggindustrin. Projects competed for the 2021 awards in six categories: Residential Housing; Hotels and Offices; Infrastructure; Industrial Buildings and Commercial Properties; Community Properties; and Renovations.
