Eriksberg – From shipyard to sustainable housing

Opportunities enabled

Derelict industrial premises from the era of shipyards have been transformed into an exciting mix of modern housing and renovated dockside buildings.

The reconstruction of Eriksberg was made with the environment in focus. One interesting feature is the underground waste collection system. Eriksberg is one of the first areas in the world using several fractions. It was started already in 1993 and is still expanding. When Eriksberg is complete the automated waste collections system will handle waste (food-, paper- and residual waste) for over 5000 apartments.
