Karolinska University Hospital, Solna, Sweden

Karolinska University Hospital is one of Scandinavia's premier health facilities with building area of approx. 380,000 m2.

We have been working with Caverion for more than ten years and the partnership has always been very rewarding. The reason for this is partly that we have the same objectives, but also that there is a high level of transparency between the two organisations.
