Sörred Kubiklager is an approximately 20,100 square meter modern and climate-smart warehouse with a strategic location, next to Volvo Cars in Torslanda and adjacent to Hisingen Logistics Park and close to the port of Gothenburg, one of Scandinavia's most important logistics areas.

This is a concept for modern warehouse and logistics premises with flexible contract times and room sizes. Sörred Kubiklager was completed in the third quarter 2020, and is Skanska's third in the series. The project has a strong green profile and is built with green concrete and with solar cells on the roof. The property meets the requirements for the certification GreenBuilding - new building.
