In December 2013, NCC Construction was awarded the contract in the Municipality of Kalmar’s evaluation of the submitted tenders for the construction of a new fire station in Kalmar. Hansa Bygg, who was ranked second in the evaluation, claimed that NCC Construction’s bid should have been disqualified since it did not comply with all mandatory requirements in the request for tenders. In a judgement on 18 August 2014, the Administrative Court of Appeal in Jönköping ruled in favour of Hansa Bygg’s appeal (case No 897-14). The court ruled that the municipality must re-evaluate the tenders due to flaws in NCC Construction’s tender.
The construction of the new fire station has a contractual value of appr. SEK 70-80 million.
