“The investment in appearance boosts the area’s image and offers the residents a reason to be proud of their neighbourhood,” says Lennart Jonasson from Sweco Architects. Ruukki Expression®, which consists of Ruukki® Energy Panels and images on the panel surface, was used in the exterior walls of the Fleminghallen.

Ruukki Expression®, which consists of Ruukki® Energy Panels and images on the panel surface, was used in the exterior walls of the building. Ruukki Expression® provides a stylish look for the building, while the images boost the building’s character and appearance. Investments in the appearance of buildings influence people in many ways, especially in industrial environments where the buildings are similar. A pleasant environment clearly reduces vandalism and graffiti, for example.
Skanska was the developer and main contractor of Fleminghallen. In addition to technical requirements, such as leaktightness and soundproofing, the architectural requirements included doing something different with the building.
Completed in late 2017, the Fleminghallen houses an ICA market, a sports arena and an aparthotel. The area is still under development: it is slowly becoming the new centre of Flemingsberg.
